This viola is hand-crafted and spirit-varnished by highly skilled luthiers in a small production workshop. Well-flamed European maple back and sides with select European spruce top. Made in the Czech Republic.
This instrument is an excellent choice, whether tuned in standard viola tuning (C3 G3 D4 A4), tenor viola tuning (G2 D3 A3 E4) or octave viola tuning (C2 G2 D3 A3). Available in 15.5”, 16” or 16.5”. Wittner Finetune planetary tuning pegs are available as an option.
- Viola tuning (C3 G3 D4 A4): Dominant
- Tenor viola tuning (G2 D3 A3 E4): SuperSensitive Sensicore Octave Viola Strings (E string: Dominant)
- Octave viola tuning (C2 G2 D3 A3): SuperSensitive Sensicore Octave Viola Strings
Available in 15.5”, 16” and 16.5”
While any of the three available sizes work very well with a standard viola tuning, we consider the 15.5” size to be the best for a tenor (i.e. octave lower than a violin) tuning. The 16” is suitable for tenor tuning as well. Either the 16” or the 16.5” are ideal for an octave viola (i.e. cello) tuning.
