This recommendable viola was built in 1952 in Bad Ischl in Austria, a quality instrument by Frotz Schmitzer that is highly suitable demanding advanced players. The transparent yellow-brown varnish bears many traces from playing which underline the beauty of the medium grained spruce that was used for the top and the flaming of the sycamore maple of the two-piece back. The purfling was accurately inlaid and demonstrates the skills of a good craftsman, who built this good viola. Without any damage or repair, this viola is offered in excellent condition. Interesting traces of use indicate that this old viola was often played, and it is ready to express its convincingly mellow, warm, large sound, that has some dark, rounded character and is well-balanced, precise and resonant.
