Hans Frei

  • String length 66 cm
  • 10 fret spaces
  • Model E

This is based on the smaller of the two original Frei lutes in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna. The body is in  the characteristic ‘pearl’ form which the  Bologna lute-makers were renowned. The cross sections of the eleven rib back are slightly less strongly formed than the Warwick Frei, though why this should be so remains a matter of speculation.
