Dan Trueman saw a 5-string hardangerfiddle I had made for Vidar Lande. He asked me to make something similar, but wanted a deeper sound and to tune it to A as standard (normal hardangerfiddles are mostly tuned one step higher than violin). I made a fiddle with a somewhat longer (38cm) and wider body and violin string length. He came to get it in 2010. He then took it to Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh. Caoimhín named it Hardanger d'amore and things kept on rolling!
