After Sellas 76/150cm f#'/e'
9 frets 31 ribs Model EE
This is a large archlute, a copy of a beautiful instrument in the
Brussels Conservatoire collection by Mattheus Sellas, Venice. It has a
very similar style to the chitarroni of Mattheus Buechenberg, and indeed
could be tuned as a small chitarrone, with re-entrant tuning. The back
can be built in a hard wood, as the original, for a penetrating sound,
or in yew for a warmer tone. Stringing (6x2)(8x1).
