Finding Bass Gamba Fittings

Recommended Posts

I am finding it difficult to order fittings for a Westover bass viola da gamba. Where on the internet can I find fret gut, pegs, tailpiece and bridges?

Anything standardised and off the shelf is bound to be wrong for a particular instrument. Everything needs to be carefully matched to the style of gamba, strings as well. For frets I use bits of old broken strings!

Fret gut is broken strings, if you have a friend playing classical guitar a broken nylon string will work until you get your own supply of broken strings.
