Modern mid 20th century English viola, oil varnished
This large modern English viola is our special recommendation: a good handmade instrument following a unique, self-confident model, made most likely in England. The length of back is 41.8 cm. The tonewoods are beautifully selected: the top is medium grained spruce, the two piece back of attractive, mildly flamed maple. The delicate soundholes and the inlaid purfling are traditionally made in the English tradition. The luminous orange-brown oil varnish is richly applied and in very good condition with some slight surface craquellation and wear from playing. This instrument has been maintained in perfect, crackfree condition. It has been meticulously worked over and set up by the specialists on our atelier and is offered with a new fingerboad, pegs, brdige, soundpost and strings like all Corilon instruments in fine condition, ready to play Her huge, resonant sound is warm, clear and precise, even over the strings and well balanced.
