£4,458.33 excluding VAT (UK Export Price)
Lu Mi 6 string violone in A after Richard Meares ca1660, antique varnish. This violone is scaled up from the Meares 6 string bass viol and could also be used as an all gut consort bass viol in D, ideal for 8' bass lines. String length 800mm. It is made from very high quality wood and combines excellent craftmanship with a full, rich 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. With a string length of 800mm this violone produces a most appealing rich and full sound.
