About this mod

This mod replaces the textures for Drums, Flutes and Lutes in Skyrim.
Different versions available

Permissions and credits

This is the 50th mod i´m uploading to Nexus, so it had to be something special for me. I'm a musician myself, so working on these things was really nice.

LuteThe first version i made (the brown lute), was intended to look like a believable instrument you might have found in medieval times. But as many of you like to keep it vanilla, i added an enhanced and completely remade vanilla version (the red lute). It was tough to find a way to make it look different, as the vanilla meshes are build to suit the brass framework. so i did my best to create an alternative look. hope you guys like it :) Also remade the sound hole of the lute as it´s just a black oval in the vanilla version.
Alternative Blue and Blank Wood versions available

FluteUsed some warm hi res wood textures and added carvings with a look (same in both versions)

DrumCompletely remade all parts of it - wood, rope, drum skin and added some norse/celtic drawings (same in both versions)

This mod retextures the instruments found in game. I created new textures for drums, flutes and lutes. Added some carvings and drawings. 

Version two is closer to vanilla, for those who prefer. See images for comparison.   
All textures are 2K

- download with your prefered mod manager, install and overwrite when promted
- or download manually, extract and put the "Textures" folder of this mod in your Skyrim directory

- disable/uninstall the mod from your manager or remove the files from your Skyrim directory

These textures should be compatible with everything.
