16-5/16″ Viola Inspired

By An Alto Of Andrea Guarneri, ca. 1676

This 16-5/16″ (413mm) viola model is an excellent combination of playability and sound.  It is large enough to produce a robust dark sound that projects well, while being small enough to get around on.  I’ve built this viola model more often than any other and it works very well in both modern and period setup.
