Thirteen string lirone or lira da gamba 2.
And here there are some pictures of
the finished instrument.
As said on the previous post, this instrument is based on a
painting by Ferdinand Bol´s ''Dame mit lira
da gamba'' at the kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
It does not follow the exact outline of the painting, on the actual
instrument corners are less pronounced (even though this ''curvy''
shape can be seen on other instrument paintings).
It has thirteen strings ( two bourdons) and even though there is no
view of the back it is arched.
Strung all in gut.
> The bow
is pretty long and it held from the nut without touching the hairs to
get the maximung playing length.
This is what Adriano Banchieri said in his "Conclusioni nel suono
dell'organo" (Bologna, 1611)
