Consort of viols
Starting with a six course bass viol by Henry Jaye, now located in Gemeente Museum, Den Haag, and a small treble instrument from the Musikinstrumentenmuseum Leipzig, I designed a set of viols and sized them by interpolation. The set comprises bass viols of 720mm, 690mm und 675mm string length respectively, a division viol of 640mm string length, a tenor viol of 540mm string length and two treble viols of 384mm and 360mm. The tops are carved traditionally or made from wood strips.
