Baroque Guitar and Renaissance Lute

Baroque Guitar and Renaissance Lute

Every year at the LA NAMM show I find something unique and wonderful. Mid-East Music specializes in handcrafted historic and ethnic instruments. Unlike other sources I’ve encountered, they understand and service the instruments they sell and control and participate in the manufacture process. Hand made in Pakistan, these instruments are remarkably cleanly built: accurate joinery, clean fit and finish. I was VERY impressed by the overall quality and appearance and the prices are a fraction of what we commonly see in second hand historic Lutes and Baroque guitars.

At last I can offer a completely playable historic Lute and Baroque guitar for a price that “makes sense” to most of my clients who simply want to experiment with this era of music. These instruments are “the real thing” at an affordable price. These instruments even come with lightweight but solidly made hardshell cases !

Rickenbacker introduced the 4001 bass in 1961 as an improved version of their first bass, the 4000 (introduced in 1957). The 4001 sported the same distinctive ‘crested wave’ body shape, but added a neck pickup and the cast bridge with built-in adjustable mute.

Stelling Banjos

We were thrilled to renew our dealership with Stelling and now carry three models as standard stocking representation of these fine banjos. Stelling established themselves as a benchmark in modern banjo construction with a unique approach to tone ring to rim construction that ensures maximum ring to rim contact for full tonal transmission. Stelling also engineered their own unique heavy centrifugal cast bronze flange and machined tailpiece to create THE classic Stelling banjo sound.
