NTD - New Theorbo Day!

Post by RobMacKillop » Mon Oct 09, 2017 8:11 pm

I sold one guitar (not my Ambridge) and bought this theorbo from 2002, by Jiri Cepelak of the Czech republic. It's wonderful to play, and sounds great. I hope you like the video.

May it continue to bring you much happiness.

Cheers, Pat. Music is one of the best ways to relieve stress...so you would think most musicians were stress-free. Unfortunately not! Oh well, things could always be worse.

Rob,

Very nice instrument and video -- beautiful piece you played!

As for the video, when I clicked on the embedded video in your post, I got an error message, but when I clicked on the blue hyperlink below it, I was taken to youtube where the video worked, so the link itself is okay.

Beautiful instrument! I have been looking at multi string guitars lately and your Theorbo sounds and looks great. The bass notes are clear and I love how resonant they are. I couldn't open the link in the large picture but the the link below it to youtube opened for me.

Cool...I just bought a copy of your Bach for Ukulele so you should be getting a small royality check :) That ought to pay for less than 1 33rd of the price of that new toy.

Looks like a beast to hold and play. Are you full gut on that one?
