Today Bernie started work on a couple of brand new Rebecs! Rebecs are cool, pear-shaped, violin-like instruments that were the hottest thing in the medieval dance halls.

Bernie is combining his characteristic modern technical eclat and traditional artistic elan to build the hottest rebecs to hit the stage in centuries! Despite recent editorial laxity, I do hope to have further info and pics about Bernie's latest instruments soon. For now, click here
to check out the Vielle & Rebec page at lehmannstrings.com to see photos of some of Bernie's Rebecs and other medieval instruments.
If you are interested in more info on the 'electric guitar of the castle's great hall' the Wikipedia entry
is as good a place to start as any.
