About This Item

The "Best in Class!" icon is your assurance that SHAR has searched the world for instruments that are they very best value in each category. We offer a variety of instruments for different playing levels and price ranges, so that you can find the instrument that is perfect for your needs.

In the 1930s, Lionel Tertis, the most influential violist of the 20th century, created a unique design for a viola that allowed for a big, viola sound, yet was easy to navigate by smaller or younger players. The result is a viola with a small upper bout for maneuverability and a large lower bout for big sound. Our new Lamberti® Tertis viola is based on Tertis's design. It is beautifully crafted from choice tonewoods and finished with a subtle antique varnish. Our violists here at SHAR have described this viola's cello-like sound as awesome.
