Fingerboard: 16.5“ Ebony, 15“ Spruce fiber composite, Spruce fiber composite (injection moulded). Dark and hard like ebony. Smooth to the touch and perfectly shaped - and helping preserve natural resources. The decisive feature being the fingerboard will not warp - thus making it ideal for use with carbon fiber.
Pegs: Wittner finetune pegs
Bass Bar: Carbon and bonded to the instrument. It gives warmth to the lower strings and helps stabilize the top.

About Mezzo-Forte violas:
The Mezzo-Forte design concept is to develop instruments for the 21st Century. Any measurements used in traditional viola making have been transferred in order to help the player feel immediately familiar with the instrument. Therefore switching between wood and Carbon Fiber should not be a problem.
From the beginning to the end, all instruments are made in Mezzo-Forte's workshop in Germany, and they set a high value on quality and making fantastic instruments.
All Mezzo-Forte instruments come with a certificate of authenticity and a unique serial number which makes them easy to identify.
