I ordered a

I ordered a Scott Cao 750e viola in a 15 1/2 inch size made in the Stradivarius viola style for my daughter. She graduated from a 14 inch viola to this size. The difference in sound was tremendous and a welcome upgrade. With the larger size she can project more without forcing it. The sound of the Cao 750e has body, projects nice, sounds fantastic. It appears to be a comfortable instrument for her to play presenting no bio-mechanical issues. It sounds good solo, in chamber group or in the orchestra. The finger board is slightly angled to the A string with a corresponding angle on the bridge that my luthier says is very normal but a sometimes overlooked detail among some luthiers. It allows the player to reach the other stings and bow them easier because the lower bout is larger. What this tells me is that the Cao attention to detail is superb. It comes with a mix of strings from Dommant Jarger, Dommant and another on the G string. Pegs, finger board and tail piece/tail piece button are black ebony wood. Bridge is French I don't recall the name but famous maker). The instrument also comes with a Signed Certificate of Authenticity with detailed instrument measurements from the luthier who made it. In addition, because of the Euro wood used in body, ribs and back, Cao uses on this particular model, they "antique and distress" the finish which gives the instrument a air of age that fits it style beautifully. In conclusion, I am very pleased with this instrument. It was well worth the little bit more I paid than comparable instruments. One side note: I found that because of the proliferation of Chinese made instruments, the market is flooded with all sorts of instruments from makers I had no clue about. There are so many of them that they rarely get reviewed on the Net. Not so with the Cao, numerous U-Tube reviews from professionals and amateurs alike which helped in my decision to reinforce the excellent Scott Cao reputation. Thanks Fiddleshop.com for you guidance in my purchase. Roy F. from California

This viola is a beautiful

This viola is a beautiful instrument and sounds great. I was a bit disappointed with the lower notes until I changed to my preferred strings and suddenly it opened up and had a beautiful sound in all registers. I really enjoy playing it and several have noticed the warm, full sound. My luthier guessed it to be much more expensive than it was. That was fun to hear. I think anyone would be pleased with this viola.
