About This Item

For the student ready to explore musical expression, the Etude is the perfect choice. Made by hand and finished with an attractive spirit varnish, the Etude resonates like a much more expensive viola, creating a big, bold sound. Solid spruce top, and solid maple sides, back and neck with finely-finished ebony pegs and fingerboard. The Etude has all the attributes of expensive violas... for hundreds less.

Asked On: 06/12/2018

Where was this viola made? Any case and bow? Which brand of strings is on the viola?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Janice! This viola was made in one of our quality-controlled Beijing workshops and is set up with Overture Ultra viola strings. This previously owned instrument is priced for the viola by itself, and a case and bow will have to be purchased separately. The bow we recommend is the Schmidt Workshop Bow and the case we recommend is the Toshira Violin Case in the 4/4 size (since a 14 inch viola is equivalent in size to a 4/4 violin). I hope this helps!
