7-string French Bass Viol after Bertrand 1704 (1714 head)

Completed July 2009
Scale length 726mm

The original was formerly in the collection of Jane Ryan(not to be confused with the Bertrand 1704 in the Cité de la Musique) and while there was drawn by John Pringle.  The head and relief carvings are an upscaled version of a Bertrand 1714 head on a Pardessus de viole in the collection of the Cité de la Musique.
