Louta (Lavta in Turkish) is actually the oud particular to Istanbul, in Greek it means “lute of the city”. It was intended to accompany kemençe in making drone sounds and play rhythmic dyads in public entertainments to make people dance. It looks like an oud; it is pear-shaped, although its body is slightly smaller and its timbre is a little bit rougher. It has seven strings, they are played with a long, thin plectrum. The louta’s neck is fretted as per Turkish makam music, even though it is also played in Greece; it has 26 movable frets per octave. The loutas in our catalogue have bowls made of Walnut or Mahogany, faces of spruce and pegs of rose. The loutas in our store are all hand-made, constructed by makers who have mastered their craft. Do not hesitate to visit our store in Istanbul or our website to check the variety of loutas in our catalogue. We believe you will find here the right louta for you at the best value.
