Offer price £3,375* (RRP £3,750)
Lu Mi 7 string bass viol after Nicholas Bertrand (1720) (string length 725mm) made to the highest possible standards. This 7 string French bass viol has a string length of 725mm making it particualrly suitable for the French baroque chamber and solo repertoire where a full, rich sound is required. It is made from very high quality wood and combines excellent craftmanship with an appealing 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.
