Lu Mi Viols

The Early Music Shop is proud to offer this exceptional range of viola da gambas and baroque strings from the Lu Mi workshops in Beijing. The development of this series has been the brainchild of Finnish gamba player Markku Luolajan-Mikkola, a member of viol group Phantasm, and a distinguished solo player with an international reputation. A vast range of instruments is available, ranging from small pardessus de viols in g to large 7 string bass viols after Bertrand, and The Early Music Shop carries the complete range in store. We have recently introduced a 5 string baroque 'cello, and new instruments for 2010 include a Violone in G. All our Lu Mi instruments are professionally set up in-house and are strung with Aquila gut strings. Baldock strings can be used as an alternative to special request. Cases, bows and rosin are also available, and we now offer Viol Lessons, advice and consultations through our regular viol teaching days. Call us on 01274 288100 for a complimentary 1 hour consultation with our viol teacher Jacqui Robertson-Wade!
