SKU LUMBV7PLATINUM

The master 7-string Bass Viol after Nicholas Bertrand (1704). This viol is modelled after a French bass viol by Bertrand and is particularly suitable for French baroque repertoire where a full, rich sound is required. Made from very high quality wood, these viols combine excellent craftsmanship 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.

Lu-Mi Master 7-String Viol after Bertrand

The Lu-Mi Master 7-String Viol that I received has a balanced, beautiful sound throughout the whole register and the finishing is well done. Setup by EMS is elaborate; tension and tone of the chosen strings are well balanced, the instrument is comfortable to play and the frets are set up well (good knots; enough tight but still movable). Service in EMS was very friendly and the whole process was quick and neat! Definitely an excellent instrument for its price!

very pleaed

I am studying the viol for 12 years now and dad two 6-string bass viols. Recently I bought a treble viol at Early Music. It was so nice a viol that I decided to order a 7-string LuMi Bertrand 1704. What a sound and what a sustain. Very nice an instrument. The contcts with sales at Early Music went very smoothely. Recommended!

Excellent study instrument

I bought this viol two month ago. This is my first instrument, I have been playing for a year and a half and I wanted a reliable, easy to play and affordable 7 strings viol. I am delighted my purchase. This viol is nice to play, has a beautiful warm and round sound and I think that it will allow me to develop my skills. The Early Music Shop has been great. When I purchased the instrument in Saltaire, we had made an appointement and they had prepared various viols for me to try. I was offered to play each of them as long as needed in a quiet and private room. Peter was lovely, helpful and supportive. The overall experience was definitelty worth 5 stars.
