Viol, tenor, by Wolfgang Uebel, dated 1971

Amongst viol (viola da gamba) players, Wolfgang Uebel's atelier in Celle is considered a premier address for replicas and repairs of historic instruments. A former journeyman under Peter Harlan at Sternberg Castle, Uebel has made an excellent international name for himself over the years, and he has worked for such notable institutions as the Hill Collection of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Rheinische Landesmuseum in Bonn. In 1971, he crafted this tenor viol (36.1 cm string length), which still features its original bridge and is a particularly refined example of his high craftsman standards. Made of moderately to finely grained spruce, the top features a gentle arch of the table and fluting which both clearly communicate the master's extensive experience and care. His artisanry also led him to select the gently flamed maple used in the back and ribs. The scalloped edges of the rosewood fingerboard interplay beautifully with the delicately carved rosette underneath it. The viol, which has no cracks, was carefully set up in our studio, including minor repairs to the scroll and the back joint. It is in very good condition and ready to play. Uebel's dated original label inside the body of the gamba confirms its provenance.
