Viola No 36 by Yngve Akesson, Sweden

This nordic viola is a unique, large instrument, that was built in 1983 by the Swedish violin maker Yngve Åkesson, Helsingborg. Its unconventional shape lends the instrument eye-catching individuality as it is rare to find. Even if some might find it a little bold, the viola is not heavier than other instruments of its size - and features a surprisingly beautiful, light and well-balanced sound. We offer this highly interesting instrument with an original, hand-written and numbered label, in undamaged condition, looked over and made ready to play by our luthier.
