Rare "Ritter viola", viola alta, Markneukirchen, c.1910

The giant Ritter viola (also called viola alta) was invented by Hermann Ritter on the principls of mathematics in the early 20th century. This rare antique Ritter viola of majestic sound was built around 1910 in Markneukirchen, it features a bodylength of 47.5 cm. The purfling was thoroughly inlaid and indicates good craftsmanship, just as the carefully selected, quality tonewoods, that are decorated by the very transparent golden-brown varnish with beautifully made antiqueings. Regular, medium grained spruce was chosen for the top and deeply flamed maple for the two-piece back. This beautiful Ritter viola is preserved undamaged in excellent condition and - like all old stringed instruments from Corilon violins - it has been worked over by our luthiers, who made it ready to play. This rare Ritter viola features a majestic large, warm and recommendably well-rounded sound with excellent volume and a deep viola character.
