The Sims Medieval Wiki

Lutes are used by the Bard hero and are skilled at playing songs on them. The strings of lutes, especially cheap ones, are prone to breaking after (or sometimes during) performances. A broken lute can not be played, but any Bard can restring their lute for a small amount of simoles. Lutes can be bought at the Village Shoppe, some available only when certain Aspects are high enough, or found through random events and quests. Lutes can not be crafted by any profession. There are two unique lutes available with the Pirates & Nobles expansion, through aligning with each side.
