I've only played this viola for about 3 weeks, however, it continues to impress me. A vast variety of sounds, tones and textures can easily be pulled from this Da Salo. Tones are focused, clear and when my finger patterns are off some, it's forgiving. Extreme volume is substituted with a delicate and emotional tonal color. (very important for playing in a sanctuary as I do) It has clear, mature tones in all positions that I play in (first through fifth) It doesn't "muddy" out above third like so many instruments that I have played (I am a former teacher). It also isn't held together with heavy varnish or tons of glue. The tone is from clean craftsmanship and wood selection.
