Never heard of, or heard this instrument before but it has a very cool sound.

I saw a thumbnail for it, but the headstock looked as though it had been 3D printed, so I ignored it.

Lira da braccio is like a viola (viola da braccio? - hold it on your arm)?

Bratsche is still German for viola.

Lirone/Lira da Gamba! 

The "Reentrant tuning" it uses is AMAZING! 

Alternating up a 5th and down a 4th... how do you get used to playing that? 

Very cool, @Mark! 

Thanx!

Very cool. Lot's of strings to keep track of.
