Figure 2.11. Basse de Violon in Marin Mersenne's Harmonie Universelle, 1635.
The drawing that appears in his treatise Harmonie Universelle not only depicts the larger
sized bass violin but clearly informs as to its tuning as well. The pitches are
Bb-F-c-g, corresponding to the larger sized model discussed above. These pitches are depicted
on the left side of the "basse de violon" in the drawing. The picture provides an unambiguous
representation of an early-seventeenth-century bass violin.
Here’s what’s next.
