7 strings bass viol 'Stradivarian' set

(inspired by wound string samples referred to Stradivari)

String length: 120 cm

This set is inspired by three Stradivari’s wound string found at the Violin Museum in Cremona. They consist of one demifile-type string and two close wound strings.

From the measurements we took on the specimens, it is probably the fifth, sixth and seventh string of a 7-string bass gamba. Examples of this type of setting can be found in 18th century French iconography.
