Lu Mi 6 string bass viol (division) after Barak Norman ca1692 (string length 658mm). This Barak Norman bass viol has a slightly shorter string length making it suitable for solo bass viol repertoire and is easy to play with smaller hands. It is made from very high quality wood and combines excellent craftmanship with a full, rich, rounded sound and a beautiful appearance. The ribs, back and neck are made of sycamore, the top of spruce, and the fingerboard and tailpiece of sycamore with ebony veneer or birds-eye maple. The wood is fully kiln-dried for stability.

The Lu Mi range of instruments is the result of years of development and refinement overseen by Markku Luolajan-Mikkola, the leading Finnish gamba player. They are instruments designed by a player of distinction with other professional performers in mind, and are faithful to the authentic light construction techniques of early strings.
