Handmade Viols from Bob Eyland
Placing a commission for a handmade Viol gives you the opportunity to own a unique instrument tailored specifically to your needs. Whether it is your first viol or you are an experienced professional player the aim is to produce an instrument that is a pleasure to play, beautiful to look at and has superb musical qualities.
“I have been buying Bob Eyland’s viols for 35 years – 16 instruments to date. I have bought several instruments from other makers too, but for their clear tone and ease of playing, and for Bob’s immaculate craftsmanship, I keep going back for more.”
Alison Crum. Performer, teacher and President of the Viola da Gamba Society of Great Britain.

“A copy or, more accurately, a meticulous reconstruction of a G violone which Bob made for me in 1983 has been and is still one of my favourite instruments. It is enormously versatile, as well as beautifully made, and recently has been much admired as the ideal bass instrument in early Bach.”
