  Viol on the Isenheimer Altar (1506-1515)  
  Viol on the Isenheimer Altar (1506-1515)  

Es: Viola de regazo, Viola da gamba, Fr: Viole, Viole de gambe, It: Viola da gamba, Gamba, Med. De:  Kniegeige, Cs: Viola da gamba, Eo: Gambovjolo, Da: Viola da gamba, Fi: Viola da gamba, Hu: Viola da gamba, Nl: Viola da gamba, No: Gambe, Pl: Viola da gamba, Pt: Viola da gamba, Sv: Gamba

There is an almost universal misconception that the viol is a much earlier instrument than the violin and that somehow the entire violin family developed from it.

The viol preceded and then remained contemporary with the violin which finally superseded it as concert halls grew larger, and the louder and more audible tone of the violin family became more popular

The status, technique, repertoire and construction of the viol is quite different to the violin.

The Tenor Viol is based on an instrument by John Rose c1604 in a private collection and is a full size tenor measuring some 98cm overall length with a vibrating string length of 55cm.

Our 6-string Bass Viol is based on an instrument by Henry Jaye dated 1624 in a private collection and is a 'large' division viol measuring 120cm overall length with a vibrating string length of 68cm and ribs 12cm deep.

The 7 String Bass Viol is based on an instrument by Barak Norman c1710 in a private collection and is a 'small' bass viol measuring xmm overall length with a vibrating string length of 69cm and ribs 12cm deep.

Viol Kit
The same range of Viols are offered in kit form for home assembly. The price includes the license to build one instrument for private use.

An important feature of our viol kits is the inclusion of a mould to ensure success, even for the first time builder, so assembly of the body can begin immediately.

The selected maple back is centre jointed, sanded to thickness and with the fold guide pre-cut.

The fingerboard and tailpiece are supplied as tapered blanks to be shaped before applying the matching rosewood veneer.

The ribs are pre-bent. Pegs, maple bridge, purfling, veneer, fretting gut and a set of good quality strings are all included.

A fully dimensioned plan and instruction manual take the builder through the construction of the instrument in a clear and concise manner, with 'step by step' photographs further illustrating each stage.

All the kits Include free access to our customer 'Helpline' should you need any advice on construction, setting-up or playing.

The 6 string Treble Viol kit has the centre jointed front made from top quality Swiss pine with the arching profiled, leaving only the final thicknessing and sanding for the builder.
The neck has a solid scroll and a shaped peg box with taper reamed holes to which solid rosewood pegs are already fitted.

The 6 string Tenor Viol kit has centre jointed front made from top quality Swiss pine with the arching profiled, leaving only the final thicknessing and sanding for the builder.
The neck has a solid scroll and a shaped peg box with taper reamed holes to which solid rosewood pegs are already fitted.

The 6 string Bass Viol kit has the centre jointed front made from top quality Swiss pine with the arching profiled, leaving only the final thicknessing and sanding for the builder.
The neck has a pierced scroll and a shaped peg box with taper reamed holes to which solid rosewood pegs are already fitted.

In the 7 string Bass Viol kit, the top quality Swiss pine front is supplied centre jointed only, leaving the shaping and profiling to the builder.
The neck is cut to outline shape leaving the finishing and fitting of the rosewood pegs to the builder.
This kit requires some previous experience of instrument making and a reasonably well equipped workshop.
