The viola d' amore is a 17th century instrument that has 14 strings and spans the range of both a violin and a viola. Seven strings are played while seven understrings sound to the harmonic vibrations of the overstrings.Some believe the hardanger fiddle and its understrings were influenced by the viola d' amore.

The instriment pictured on the right is a copy of a viola d'amore Seraphine 1723. My father was a master luthier who specialized in viola d'amore. His craftsmanship was outstanding. He built two different models.
