This is one of the best violas we have seen at this price range.  The quality of the viola way exceeds the price.  This is a high quality advance level viola.  The viola is made with high quality spruce for the viola top and well flamed maple for the side and back.  Sound quality of a viola is affected by both the wood used and workmanship that went into the viola.  Both the quality of the wood and the workmanship of this viola well exceeded the value of the viola.  The viola also come with a ebony fingerboard and a beautiful matching set of boxwood fittings: tuning pegs, tailpiece and chinrest.  The ebony fingerboard provides solid playability and intonation control.  The boxwood tuning pegs make tuning easy and trouble-free.  The matching boxwood fittings make the viola very aesthetically pleasing to play with.  The bow is made out of high quality Brazilwood with horsehair providing good sound volume and playability.  

The light weight all-purpose case provides ultimate protection to the viola.  The case comes with backpack design - carrying viola to lesson, school or orchestra practice is made easy.


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

  • Viola side and back are made with well flamed maple.  Flamed is a term used to describe the amount of grain (wood pattern) in maple.  Using higher flamed maple to make the side and back of the viola increases both aesthetics and value of the viola.

  • Matching set of boxwood fittings: tuning pegs, tailpiece and chinrest.  The matching boxwood fittings make the viola very aesthetically pleasing and enhances the value of the viola. 

  • Real inlaid purfling on both the viola top and back

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

  • Fingerboard is made out of high quality ebony for solid playability and intonation control. 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.
