More on the Laud:

Laúd is a plectrum-plucked chordophone from Spain. It belongs to the cittern family of instruments. It has six double courses (i.e. twelve strings in pairs), similarly to the bandurria, but its neck is longer. the strings in each course are tuned in unison. Traditionally it is used folk string musical groups, together with the guitar and the bandurria. Like the bandurria, it is tuned in fourths, but its range is 1 octave lower.

Laud's name derives from the Spanish word for lute.
