Folks, I've been approached by someone wanting a lira da braccio! I know of several, including the da Salo and Giovanni Maria in the Ashmolean, as well as the Linarol in the NMM. The Ashmolean has the Hill drawings of the Maria, but other than that I am not aware of any good tech data on one of these beasts. I'm hoping some of you will be able to point me towards additional resources, comment on the quality of the Hill data, or talk about your experiences making a lira. Thanks so much!
Question: The NMM Stainer nut is 6mm closer to the scroll than the heel of the pegbox. This appears to be the same on some other Stainers (like the one Roger wrote about). So the question is, for a modern setup, leave it, or adjust the pattern so the nut and heel line up?
