Herzog 2003, QT-98 (FB+S)

Seen by Herzog, 8/06: “The instrument could be described as a ‘hybrid’ between quinton and pardessus, although its contruction is more violin-like than viol-like”--but corners are not pointed, edges not overhanging, and ribs appear deeper than most quintons, though back is arched. Attribution to Salomon apparently based on similarity of carved head to that on a bass viol by Salomon. 2 pegs treble, 3 bass side.
