The viola, colloquially also called viola, belongs to the family of string instruments after the "small" violin. It sounds a little deeper and warmer than the violin and is written in alto clef. The viola is indispensable in the symphony orchestra and in string ensembles. To start with, there are sets for beginners. Here it is important to pay attention to a good sound and proper workmanship. Single instruments or sets with case and bow are recommended from Stentor or Yamaha. Violas are available in different sizes from 39 cm to 43 cm body length. The size in inches from 12" to 16.5" is also common. We have different versions for you in our shop.
