So I am part of a historical society, and I have always been interested in transfering my bass playing to something period (time period) in the society. A friend of mine mentioned the Viol and I was wondering if anyone in the bass expanse of Talkbass had experience or knew more about the instrument.(ie sound, quality, price, luthiers, etc.) I found a wikipedia page with general wikipedia like descriptions and tuning. Viol - Wikipedia I apologize if this is the wrong forum, it is a distant relative to the bass guitar so I figured bass guitar forum would be appropriate.
