Italian Viols

From the end of the great Italian viol making period come these two very different, but in their own way uniquely interesting examples.

Treble Viol

After GIOAN MARIA, Venice c.1580

SL 36.0cm

A simple but elegant example of a rare size for Italian viols.

Bass Viol

After G.P.MAGGINI, Brescia c. 1610

SL 76.0cm

Maggini, like his teacher Gasparo da Saló, combined violin and viol making, but he made nothing finer than this bass.
