Question by:

  • YUKAKO JONES
  • PLANO, TX

Asked On: 09/07/2018

I don't know which viola size to order for my student if he fits 1/2 size.

SHAR Answer:

Hello Yukako! If your student plays a 1/2 size violin, a 12 inch viola would be the best fit for him. If you want to confirm that sizing, feel free to check out our sizing guide to make sure he's properly sized. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Question by:

  • POPULAR SHAR STAFF QUESTION
  • ANN ARBOR, MI

Asked On: 07/27/2016

What is the minimum that I should look for in a beginner’s violin or viola?

SHAR Answer:

When you buy a beginner's violin or viola, it's a good idea to be aware of its materials, set-up and durability. You'll want the instrument to be made from a solid spruce top and to have maple wood used for its back, neck, and sides. It ought to have real ebony fittings, for durability, and it's ideal to have pegs and fine tuners that are easy to turn and don’t slip. Most importantly, you'll want your violin or viola to meet the proper measurements/specifications and set-up, just like all of the instruments we carry here at SHAR! If the instrument has the proper specifications and set-up, then you will be equipped to succeed at learning the violin or viola. That will help minimize frustration and maximize the enjoyment of learning.
