    Re: A new baroque mandolin

    I used nylon strings on this. Historically it would've been gut.

    Re: A new baroque mandolin

    Thanks! It's tuned in fourths like all baroque mandolins, in this case beadg. In the case of a 6 course one, it'd have a bass g course on the bottom.

    It's tuned in fourths or fourths and fifths (for octaves). They were historically also tuned in lute intervals.

    Re: My First Bowl oud/Lute

    Looks great! Your design (with the separate flat bottom) is actually closer to a Balalaika or Georgian Panduri than an oud, but great work either way!

    I'd love to hear how it sounds.

    Nope, I've never built one. And yes, only the highest course is tripled.

    Re: My latest oud

    This oud is tuned CGADGC. Same as the standard tuning mentioned above, but the G drone works quite well for a lot of Persian/Iranian music.
