This is our best priced European viola. It is also our lowest priced viola that comes with the Trade-In Guarantee. The combination of low price and Trade-In Guarantee has made this viola one of our most popular entry-level viola. 

Completely handcrafted in Romania, this viola is made with high quality wood and excellent workmanship. Sound characteristics are warm and projectory - very desirable for playing in the orchestra. The solid workmanship on this viola also makes it a very stable instrument and is less susceptible to temperature and humidity changes.

The viola outfit also comes with an octagonal Brazilwood bow and a suspension case.  The octagonal bow is made out of professional grade Brazilwood with Mongolian horsehair providing great sound volume and playability.  The archtop design of the case provides solid strength to the overall integrity of the case hence providing the utmost protection for the viola stored inside it.  It also features well padded handle, large subway handle, accessory compartment, and full length music pocket.  These features make carrying viola to lesson, school or orchestra practice easy.

This viola outfit comes with our 10-Day Monday Back Guarantee and Trade-In Guarantee.  

  • The 10-Day Monday Back Guarantee allows you to evaluate the viola in the comfort of your own home before making a purchase.  For details, please click on the link Viola 10-Day Money Back Guarantee.

        VIOLA

  • Features fully graduated solid spruce viola top, maple viola back, sides, neck, and scroll - no cheaper laminated wood or hardwood used on this viola

  • Real inlaid purfling on both the viola top and back

  • Tuning pegs are made out of ebony wood for trouble-free tuning. Ebony is preferred over hardwood since it is more stable and less likely to slip causing viola to go out of tune. 

  • Fingerboard is also made out of ebony for solid playability. The hardness of ebony wood protects the fingerboard from denting by the fingernail. Dents on the fingerboard make it very difficult to play the viola in tune.

  • Ebony tailpiece and nut provides stability to string intonation

  • 4 string adjusters (fine tuners) and steel strings

  • Fully fitted maple bridge

  • Made in Romania

  • Available in 16", 15", 14", and 13" size

        BOW AND ROSIN

  • The bow comes with octagonal stick made out of professional grade Brazilwood providing stability, playability and control.

  • The bow comes with professional grade Mongolian horsehair providing sound volume and projection.

  • Ebony frog, silver winding, and leather grip

  • 1 large rosin with wooden holder

        CASE

The wood archtop hardshell case provides the utmost protection for the viola stored inside it.  The hardshell case provides solid strength to the overall integrity of the case.  The arch shape design of the case top adds additional rigidity to the case.  This design is valuable in providing uncompromising case integrity in the event of accidentally placing heavy load on top of case and protecting viola's most vulnerable parts.

The case comes with a beautiful brass hygrometer that provides the humidity reading at all times.  You can monitor the humidity level and action appropriately before atmospheric elements do any damage to the viola.  (When the viola is exposed to high level of humidity, it will cause the wood to lose its rigidity and the fingerboard of the viola to lower.  Extreme dry condition causes glue that holds the viola together to lose its adhesiveness creating cracks in the viola.)

The neck strap and viola anchor keep the viola securely in place.  The well padded handle and large subway handle make carrying the viola very comfortable.  The shoulder strap offers the option of carrying the case over your shoulder.

The case comes with many protection features for the viola: deluxe 4-point suspension cushions, neck strap, blanket, and soft neck cushion.  These features are designed to ensure that your viola is well protected inside the case.  Weather guard flaps add additional protection against rain and moisture.

No longer do you need to carry multiple bags for music lessons or orchestra practices.  This case has room for everything.  In addition to holding viola and bows, the case has a large accessory compartment for shoulder, rosin, strings and other items, and a string tube for strings.  The case also offers full case length outside music pocket that can hold a lot of music and other accessories.
