This model was first made as a special request by a client wanting a Ruggeri copy but with viol corners. Since then it has become a firm favourite, especially with those who prefer the aesthetics of a viol model or who find them more playable with a German style bow. This is popular as a five-string double bass and is really at home in the orchestra.
Length of Back:
The Martin Ruggieri Viol double bass is available in both four- and five-string versions. A specific string length and other special requests can easily be accommodated. If you want any further information or would like to place an order, please do get in touch.
