Asked On: 07/03/2018

Viola amo set SHORT scale available?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Hilary! Unfortunately, these Kaplan Amo viola strings only come in the Long Scale, which is suited for full size violas (or for 16 inch and above, as listed by D'Addario). You should still be able to use them on a slightly smaller viola (14 or 15 inch), but they would need to be wrapped around the peg a few extra times to compensate for the extra length. I hope this helps!
