The trade of stringed musical instrument making and restoration is called 'Liuteria' (in Italian) and a violin-maker is called a 'liutaio'(in Italian). Among the earliest makers was Andrea Amati who worked in Cremona, Italy from around 1560. Many of the most famous historical violin makers worked in Cremona.

James Robinson began his career by studying violin making in Cremona (from 1971) with the renowned masters; GB Morassi, F. Bissolotti and G.Scarabotto.

Violin D' Amore made by James W Robinson. Made in Australia. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. This instrument is my interpretation of some English made instruments from the early to mid 18th century. They were called 'English Violet' and usually had 13 or 14 strings similar to the Viola D' Amore. This instrument has only 9 strings, 5 playable and 4 sympathetic. The 5 playable strings are tuned EADGC. I have also added a 'Johari' bridge for the sympathetic strings. This is ment to act like a 'johari' bridge on a Sitar that causes them to buzz a little, strengthening their effect.

This unique instrument is the first (and only) instrument I have made from all Australian woods. The top is made from, quarter cut, Tasmanian 'King William Pine', the back and neck is made from quarter cut and figured 'Queensland Maple' ( a eucalptus ). The sides are made from 
'Curly Blackbutt, and the fingerboard and tailpiece are from 'Hairy Oak' (woods from WA).
It was fun to make. Price on application.

This cello  took its maker about two years to make while he was attending the amateur violin making course at the Marlston TAFE in Adelaide. In the early days of this course, It was taught by Dante Roccsiano, hence the distinctive style. It was well made by Bjorn (a master carpenter) and has a very big voice.
