About This Item

From the highly-respected Toronto workshop of Miki Inokuchi, this viola is a perfect representation of the Inokuchi hand. Fine projection and balance for a variety of situations and venues, yet with a pleasing and warm tone. Beautifully crafted, with a two-piece quarter sawn maple back of medium width flame. The spruce top has fine grain, straight and evenly spaced. The plates have been optimized for a soaring and open sound, a hallmark of the Inokuchi approach. Traditionally-applied oil varnish, in the signature Inokuchi rich red brown over a pleasing golden-yellow ground.

About Atelier Inokuchi
Inokuchi & Son have been hand crafting violins, violas and cellos in Toronto for over 40 years. The Inokuchi shop currently consists of master luthier Masa Inokuchi, and his son Miki. Instrument building has been in the Inokuchi family for three generations and found its beginning with the building of classical guitars in Japan. With the family’s third generation maker fully engaged in the art of violin making, the Inokuchi shop remains vital and active to this day, priding itself on achieving artist level quality and playability in their master made instruments. This is achieved through the careful proprietary tuning of plates and extreme care and attention paid to the setup of their instruments, processes carefully developed by master maker Masa Inokuchi. These efforts have built an impressive client list of the some of the world’s most beloved artists, including Pinchas Zukerman and Vladimir Orlov.
