Svenska fioler med resonanssträngar

This viol (viola da gamba), owned by the Swedish museum of performing arts (formerly known as Stockholm music museum) is not made in Sweden. However the intarsia on the edges and on fingerboard and tailpiece is similar to that of several double-deckers. The early luthiers in Ängelholm must have been inspired by colleagues in central europe. They might have studied for Tielke but there are also many other options since the use of these techniques seems to have been widespread.
