Stunning Tonewoods

The use of maple and spruce is a tried and tested combination used in superior quality violas. This combination produces a focused, powerful sound with plenty of body and tonal warmth, which will only improve over time. The woods are hand selected based on their age and narrowness of grain, before being hand carved for a sound and appearance full of heritage. The distance between the grain affects the resonance of the instrument, with a narrower grain resulting in a more responsive, full bodied and weighted sound with a strong tonal core. The maple back and sides help provide a hard-wearing viola that works with the narrow grain spruce, to provide a unique instrument with incredible response, projection and full tonal body.

Ebony Fingerboard

Ebony is a popular wood, known best for the clear, crisp attacks it is capable of producing. This wood is generally much brighter than maple and has a similar density too. Ebony however has oilier pores than maple and extra brittle grains. As a result of the tight grains this fingerboard doesn't require any finish. This quality gives the fingerboard a natural smooth, quick playing ability favoured by many professionals. Although there are many types of wood used to create fingerboards ebony is the darkest of them all. The wood works effectively throughout the instrument's range and is reliable for years.

Larsen Original Strings

These strings are fast becoming the go to option for professionals, offering a quick and simple viola setup. Capable of producing strong projection and versatile sounds these strings enable a long lasting and reliable performance. The A string has a solid steel core and is wound with stainless steel flat wire which is precisely rolled. However, the C, G & D strings are made with an original multi-filament nylon core. The C and G strings both have silver flat wire windings, rolled using the same method as the A string. Whereas the D string comes with aluminium winding which provides flexibility to the overall sound as well as comfort during play.

Negri Classic Case

Included in this outfit is a Negri Classic viola case made with a wooden frame, featuring a water- repellant, nylon canvas cover. The Negri Classic features carry straps so the case can be used as a backpack. The case has a velvet interior(*) with two large accessory pockets and features a high quality lock to keep your instrument safe and secure.
