The instrument can be made with a scroll or a decorative carved head, such as a blind
folded cupid angel (love is blind). The body length is 15 5/8 inches and the string
length is just a hair over 14 inches; easily managed by both violists and violinists alike.
The tuning from the bottom string the top string is as follows:
A – d – a – d’ – f#’ – a’ – d”
When you order a Viola d'Amore it will come as a complete outfit. The case is of beautifully
grained wood, oil finished with polished brass fittings, all of heirloom quality and in
period style. The bow also is in period style with an open trench frog and similar weight
to a light viola bow. Some players choose to use a modern style viola bow, and if you prefer
I will supply that instead.
