viola d'amore


A bowed stringed instrument with seven courses of strings, slightly larger than the viola. Each course of strings contains two strings, one that is actually bowed, and one that "sympathizes" with the first. The sympathetic string is not directly bowed, but is set into vibration by the close proximity it has to the string. The range of the instrument is from B below the bass clef (B1) to A above the treble clef (A5).
