This video is about the acoustic only version. Stay tuned for a video about the acoustic/electric version.

Glasser Carbon Composite violas are revolutionary new instruments. Glasser has long been a world leader in developing advanced products with the use of composite materials. These acoustic instruments are the latest development. The success of the violins has encouraged the addition of violas to this popular line.

The Glasser Carbon Composite Acoustic Electric viola combines the advanced technology of the acoustic instrument with state of the art electronics by Bartolini. This allows for the instrument to be played either acoustically or plug in to the Glasser Swordtail active chinrest system.

Built to last, they look and sound great. Glasser's patent pending design makes for an instrument with a wonderful tonal quality with durability most instruments will never match. 

The standard Glasser Carbon Composite viola arrives fully set-up with Larsen strings, Planetary Tuning Pegs, and a carbon composite Glasser tailpiece with 4 fine tuners for the ultimate tunability.

The 5 string version is only available as a 16" instrument and comes with a high E string by default (but this could easily be changed to a low F if you wanted).
