Review Videos

This viola is similar to our Holstein "Medici" viola, but is based on a general Stradivarius template, not a copy of a specific instrument. Its unique size and shape, as well as the tasteful antiquing, set it apart from the rest and so we gave it a unique page.

Details
  • These violas are bench made (made exclusively by one master Luthier)!
  • Aged Select Russian Spruce and Select Maple sourced from high altitude forests (100+ year old wood, aged and dried 20+ years)
  • Italian oil varnish with mild antiquing
  • Highest Quality Hill-style Boxwood  fittings
  • Highest Quality Ebony Fingerboard
  • French-made Despiau 3-tree Bridge
  • Thomastik Peter-Infeld (PI) Strings
  • Comes with a Quality Oblong Case
  • Body length- 39.8cm | Lower bout- 24cm | Upper bout- 19cm |

Every Holstein instrument undergoes our famous 10 - point inspection

Still not convinced?
You can request this violin on an In-Home-Trial, or request a personal video. If you can't decide between two models, we can record and send a comparison video for you to pick and choose. Chat with us, send us an email, or give us a call (800-595-0592) for a professional consultation.
