The best in class just got better.

Inspect your Strings carefully
The strings coming with the viola are of low quality. Need to inspect them carefully within 30 days. Otherwise Sharmusic will not do anything for you. You may need to add $100 budge upfront to replace the strings.
After a week's worth of research for my daughter's replacement Viola I decided this one offered the best value in the range we could afford. I chose the instrument only so I could select a premium case and bow for her separatly. We got it within 3 days. They logically packed the instrument very well, utilizing the case I ordered to encase the instrument, bow and extra strings with the shoulder rest within the outer box. My daughter tuned it and played the same song on both her old one and this one. Unbelievable difference over her old bottom end piece. The sound was crisp and clear besides being almost three times as loud as her old one (I'll need to get her a mute next!) I am VERY pleased with this purchase as will my daughters music instructor once she hears the difference. Thank You Sharmusic
My daughter is so excited to have her viola! Her teacher is really happy with the sound, so I highly recommend the concert viola for students.
