Old Mittenwald viola, Neuner & Hornsteiner

This early 20th century Mittenwald viola by Neuner & Hornsteiner is full of character. It has a striking aesthetic with wonderful woods, a luminous varnish of a particularly attractive, radiant orange-brown color over a luminous golden yellow ground. There is a playful elegance to its distinctive scroll, accurately and gracefully curved sound holes and wonderfully crafted edges and inlays. The character of this Mittenwald viola is a perfect reflection of its origins. With its bright, warm, well-balanced, resonant sound rich in volume, this good old viola was crafted with such great skill that it also has outstanding earnest and richly enigmatic tones as well. The Mittenwald viola has been meticulously worked over in our atelier and is offered ready to play. It is a fine instrument of quality that is easy to play and good for high standards, undamaged and in perfect condition.
