Lu Mi Pardessus de viole in g after Henry Jaye ca 1620(string length 310-315mm). This small pardessus de viol is made from very high quality wood and combines excellent craftmanship with a full, sweet, 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. 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.

  • String length: 310-315 mm
  • Corpus length: 320 mm
  • Corpus width: Up 155 mm / Mid 113 mm / Low 195 mm

      It has a really sweet tone and the body makes the notes ring to a surprising degree for its size. I was so excited to be able to pick up violin music and play it straight off, with ledger lines being no obstacle, unlike on a treble. Slightly wolfy on the open C string, so I might need to look into a damper on the low string side of the bass bar, as the wolf goes when I rest a finger on the body there, and it's not coming from the strings on the tailpiece side of the bridge. I'd give 5* if not for this issue, as the sound and response are otherwise beautiful. The Kingham case I bought with it fits it perfectly and is a very worthwhile accessory to get. EMS went the extra mile to get this shipped and fitted during lockdown April/May 2020.
