The Marais Baroque violin is intended for musicians that wish to recreate the authentic sound of the Baroque era, a period of history from approximately 1600-1750 and when the music of Vivaldi, Corelli, and Bach flourished. Each Marais violin is fashioned after the Baroque setup; having a shorter, wedge-shaped fingerboard made of maple, a shorter neck angled straight out from the body, no string adjusters or chinrest, a shorter bass bar, flatter bridge, and gut strings. The result is a soft, pure, and delicate sound that contrasts greatly to the full and powerful tone of the modern violin.
Note: The violin that most people play today is regarded as the modern violin, a violin with a longer fingerboard made of ebony, longer neck, chinrest, string adjusters, longer bass bar, and metal wound strings. Baroque instruments are specialized and require a specific bowing style that differs from modern technique. If you are unsure if a Baroque instrument is right for you, please contact a sales representative at 1-800-528-3430.

The bass viola da gamba is a member of the viol family, a group of instruments that flourished in Europe between 1450 and 1745. In France, the viola da gamba was particularly prominent during the reign of King Louis XIV due to the contributions of viol composer and virtuoso, Marin Marais. The models from the Marais Baroque Collection are based on instruments from the late 17th century by Michel Colichon, a prominent French viola da gamba maker. Each instrument is crafted in the traditional French style that includes seven strings tuned in fourths with a major third between the two middle strings.
