very deep, touching sweet tone
The Viola arrived today. It was extremely well packaged. The oblong case is well made; the case had a hydrometer, several internal pockets with a very aesthetic looking interior that not only looked super but was also very soft and protective. The Viola itself was purchased as a lightly used but in perfect unused looking condition, it was ready to play right out of the case. The sound that emanates from the strings is warm and pleasant to the ears, much superior to my older, student model. I found the fingering of the strings to be much improved over a less expensive Viola. The overall tone of the instrument was a warm deep tone that was not harsh in any way. I found it was easy to play bold or gentle as a whisper,,,,, also known as dynamics. The look of the instrument was superior to the image on the website. There were no defects found, the finish was,,,, flawless! Other minor accessories, the shoulder rest complimented the overall look of the instrument well and is very comfortable. It also came with a tuner, polishing cloth, and what appears to be a silk instrument bag. Being that I am 12, and have played for a number of years, currently 1st chair, I found this to be amazing and taken me much farther then I thought possible. Don't confuse my age with limited ability or love for this Viola, I chose the Viola due to it's range of sound. This instrument has a "voice" unlike any other Viola I have played before,,, or heard played... I am ever grateful to the Luthier and fiddlershop for such a well priced, incredible instrument. I also wish to thank my Grandfather for his generous gift, allowing me to have such a wonderful instrument. BTW, I brought my father to tears as I played LOL Jason M.
