The viola da gamba is a historical instrument from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. It belongs to the family of string instruments and was mainly built and used in Italy, France, Germany and England. Today the viola da gamba is mainly used in "early music", which is gaining more and more attention today.

It has 6 strings tuned in the typical baroque tuning of 415Hz. All strings are nylon strings. Due to this special mixture of strings the viola da gamba has its own character, which clearly differs from violin and cello. Especially because of the nylon strings the Viola da Gamba has its own unmistakable rough sound.

Our goal to digitally recreate the Viola Da Gamba and give it another modern expression was a success. Our Viola Da Gamba has become an amazingly independent instrument with its own unique character and a very organically rough sound. It is a great alternative to conventional orchestral string instruments.
