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.
Lute – The 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 🙂
Flute – Used some warm hi res wood textures and added carvings with a burnt.in look (same in both versions)
Drum – Completely remade all parts of it – wood, rope, drum skin and added some norse/celtic paintings (same in both versions)
What it does:
This mod retextures the instruments found in game. I created new textures for drums, flutes and lutes. Also remade the sound hole of the lute as it´s just a black oval in the vanilla version. Added some carvings and drawings.
Version two is closer to vanilla, for those who prefer. See images for comparison.

These textures should be compatible with everything.
