"Lutemakers working in central London, Stephen Barber and Sandi Harris make a range of instruments of the lute family, including renaissance lutes and baroque lutes, along with archlutes, theorbos, chitarroni, baroque guitars, vihuelas of all types, specialising in fluted-back vihuelas.
Long-established, our combined experience of lute making exceeds fifty years, during which time we have made approaching one thousand instruments; Stephen made his first lute – a copy of an original Venere lute owned by Robert Spencer – in 1972, and Sandi made her first lute in 1983, under Stephen's guidance.
We went on to form a unique, highly-successful and very efficient equal working partnership, and we usually produce around 30 instruments between us in a typical year. Our workshop in Peacock Yard was established in 1980. " See website for more information. (ed.)
