1953 Bass Viola de Gamba
This was a modern reproduction of an instrument originally made in around 1600-1670. It came to the shop with a cracked and split back and ribs (sides). Additionally, it was originally made using some modern techniques which were not period-correct. These items were corrected and the Viola de Gamba was re-built to 17th century standards. The completed restoration played and sounded quite well.
