From the mountains of Cantabria, we are bringing you the raw sound of medieval Taverns right in your DAW!
The rebec is a 1-to-5 bowed stringed instrument from the Medieval era and early Renaissance
that was typically played by professional minstrels and musicians at feasts.
We sampled a unique-sounding "rabel" (a spanish rebec) built more than 30 years ago in a remote village over the mountains of Cantabria, according to 3 centuries of oral tradition and craftsman’s teachings. There’s just a primal enchantment crafted into this 2-strings rebec: body made of raw wood, lamb skin that requires sun every now and then in order to sound properly and a bow made with horse hair.
