Hello and thank you for your post.

Well, Violas d' Amore are very difficult to find and usually they are custom made. You should find a lute-maker who's able to build one for you. I would suggest you to find lute-maker on Google.

Good luck!

Best,

Default viola d'amore

Hi, all.

I have no idea of its quality, and there is a risk in online buying of course, but there is a viola d'amore being sold on eBay (I was looking for a cheap and cheerful viola this morning).

Also, you might try one of the "early music" shops, as some of them carry such things. A quick web search will bring up several. Approximately fifteen years ago, I bought my harp sight unseen by telephone from a place in Boulder, Colorado, and lucked out: it's a beautiful instrument with a great sound.

Good luck.
