Lutes - Baroque
Renassance lutes that had been rebuilt to baroque taste, as well as lutes created after 1700 AD are suitable as models. Some, such as those by the Hoffmanns of Leipzig, have a deep body and thus disseminate a sweet sound in the vicinity of the player. Other luthiers however, such as the Edlingers in Augsburg und Prag made shallow bodies, and these instruments sound clear and strong farther away. The instruments by Schelle und Widhalm in Nuremberg are a compromise and combine warmth of tone and good projection.
