You search your mind for what you know of the bass viol...
The bass viol, or double bass, is the largest and lowest-pitched bowed string instrument of the viol family. When playing the bass viol, the bassist either stands or sits on a high stool while leaning the instrument against their body with the bass viol turned slightly inwards for more accessibility to the strings. Because of this stance, the body of the bass viol has distinct sloped shoulders.
