About This Item

Rainer Leonhardt Viola, No. 180


With a powerful, dark, cello-like sound, this viola is also remarkably agile and responsive. Great balance across the strings, and easy to play. Tonewood from Leonhardt's managed supply, assuring stability for the long-term, and enabling a mature sound to emerge. Very appealing varnish in a deep red over a golden ground, and delicate outlining.
