This page is the portal for a miscellany of player-related theorbo information. Some of the information works best as a series of pdf downloads (links below) to be read at leisure, but some aspects are sufficiently complex to merit their own pages, nested on the left.

You can download short essays in pdf form on the following topics:

FAQs about theorbo sizes, tunings, stringing, etc

The problems and implications of playing
big theorbos

Weather protection

Cases and transportation

Changing strings

Changing frets


Peg problems

Danger signs
