according to Giovanni Paolo Maggini Brescia, six-stringed

Eight-foot violone

A successful model for many years

I built the first eight-foot violone for Dane Roberts over 20 years ago.

Since then I have been building this model regularly in two versions: a small version with 84 cm swinging string length and the normal version with 87 cm swinging string length.

Both models have proven themselves very well in terms of sound.
