Bass viol

BASS VIOL - *1700 German (Hamburg) Bass viol at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London -: "Viols were bowed instruments ranging from treble to bass, but by about 1780 they had been superceded by the violin and cello.

The body may have been made by Joachim Tielke (1641-1719), but the neck, fingerboard and tailpiece date from the mid 1720s."
