Ruby GambaOpen or CloseThe First (and BEST) production-model electric viola da gamba
Ruby Instruments, Arnhem, NLI am the U.S. sales and customer service representative for Ruby Instruments, NL, the creator and builder of the Ruby Gamba. While there are a number of luthiers working to make the viola da gamba more sonically compatible (read "louder") with modern instruments, and I've tried and played most of them, I find that the Ruby Gamba is at once the most versatile, and the most viol-like of any of them.
While electric members of the violin family have gained in popularity in recent years, the potential for the Ruby Gamba far exceeds anything of which those instruments are capable. With a 7-string French Baroque set-up, 22 nylon, split-able frets, and an excellent, sensitive pickup system, the Ruby Gamba offers sonic possibilities unmatched by any other bowed instrument. The lowest-sounding string is A, the same A that is found on a bass. The response across the spectrum is excellent on the Ruby, and solid bass lines that drive your band's bus are easy on this instrument. The frets give it chordal possibilities only found on guitars (the viola da gamba IS a bowed guitar, NOT a cello), and the range of soloing possibilities extends up into the high end of the guitar and violin tessiturae.
The body is designed to sound exactly like a classical viola da gamba when run through a pristine, solid-state P.A. or acoustic amplification system. But it can also be plugged into a number of other amplification options and combinations, allowing the creative performer to develop her own unique sound and style. An instrument this revolutionary could not have appeared at a better time.
Please contact me with any questions you may have about the instrument, and how we might get you into one tomorrow!!
