Hans Frei

  • String length 66 cm
  • 10 fret spaces

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.
