Michel Colichon – Castello Sforzesco Bass

Michel Colichon was one of the most renowned viol makers in Paris in the end of 17th century. His instruments are clearly inspired by english viol makers, as we can see from the soundboards, constructed joining more (usually) parts in bent spruce (or cedrela odorata).
This instrument has a smaller body compared to the Bochum model, and can be arranged with a shorter string length without unbalancing the instrument perfect proportions.

I offer this instrument in different wood selections for neck, ribs and back: Maple, Pear wood, Walnut, Cerry tree, Mahogany.

I also offer a wide range of choices of carved pegheads, please ask for informations

Strings: gut /silver wound

String length: 69/70 cm
