The "Entertainer" Viola Features
A new addition to the Tower Strings family is the "Entertainer" viola. We have never been happy with what the market had to offer in this price range. And so, the Entertainer is our answer to a starter viola that anyone can afford! The set up, accessories, and quality of build is far above anything we have tested in this price range. The viola will arrive ready to play right out of the box. Check our viola size guide for proper sizing.

The Fiddlershop Family
Why is Fiddlershop growing so fast and revolutionizing the string instrument industry? We believe that music and instruments should be accessible to everyone at a price they can afford. Our founder Pierre Holstein (a.k.a. "Fiddlerman") works directly with makers in many different countries to produce only the best for our customers. With over 40 years as a professional violinist in orchestras around the world, he brings unmatched expertise in music and business to everything we do.
We buy our violas directly from the maker - a rare business practice that lowers our cost so we can pass the savings on to you! Every Fiddlerman viola is set up and tested in our workshop to make sure it passes our rigorous 10-point inspection. Our incredibly talented team is here to help answer any questions you have, and make sure your instrument arrives safely.
Tower Strings Warranty
All Tower Strings instrument outfits come with a standard one year warranty on both the instrument itself, and the included accessories. To learn more about our standard warranty, you can read more about it here.
I believe these Tower Entertainer violins and violas are the best bargain out there for the money. The play and sound as good as instruments that are four or five times higher in price that I have played. I ordered a "B stock" 16" viola to go along with a first Tower Entertainer instrument I purchased from Fiddlerman last Fall. The viola plays and sounds great, and there is absolutely no detectable flaw anywhere that I can see on it. The set up is perfect -- better than any I have received from any local dealer / luthier I have gone to -- no joking nor exaggerating. Really pleased with this particular viola and with Fiddlerman's service and shipping. I will certainly encourage my jam friends to purchase from the Fiddlerman shop.
