The 7 and 8 course Renaissance lutes are designed by Zachary Taylor and based on an instrument made by Hans Frei, the original of which may be seen in the Warwick Museum in England. This lute was made in Bologna about 1540 and since then may have been the subject of conversions to the stringing and the soundboard. Apart from shortening the string length from 670 mm to 600 mm, for ease of left-hand fingering, the instruments follow Hans Frei's principles of construction.
