Michel Colichon: Bass Gamba

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 4 or more (usually 5 on bass viols) parts in bent spruce (or cedrela odorata).
