Tenor viol

based on Henry Jaye, Southwark ca. 1620

This viol is the same size as the John Rose tenor in the Cité de la Musique Museum in Paris, whereas the outline, the scroll and the soundholes are taken from a Jaye treble and enlarged. Usually I make this model with a decorated scroll and double purfling on front and back. Other decorations like a carved head, a rose and extra purfling ornaments are available on request.

Body length 53.5 cm, string length ca. 57 cm.
