A Baroque style instrument that has many pieces written for duets with the harpsichord. The seven sympathetic strings that run under the fingerboard give the seven strings that are bowed, an echoing effect. This is perfect for the Romantic era.
The Baroque styles are some of Mark’s favorite to make because they are very ornate and are one of a kind instruments. Period instruments such as these are very important in order to capture the same tones and nuances of a particular era in the history of music. They also provide a specific outlet for Mark’s artistic temperament.
