Dessus Viol

This week John Pringle finished the first viol of our planned four-viol consort. The viol arrived this week and will be paired with the two prototype viols John made over the last few years. John will next work on a bass for the consort.

This first viol, with a 59 cm string length, will serve at the dessus for our consort. As shown in the photo below, it is quite a bit larger than our prototype treble.
