Solid Tonewood in Gloss Finish 
Quality Strings

a viola isn't complete without a set of quality strings to compliment the instrument.

Carved and Fitted Bridge

a bridge must be custom made to a certain height, thickness, and shape to accomodate every individual viola. A properly done bridge would also make string-crossing for beginner violist much easier.

Precision Soundpost Set-up

the soundpost provide structural support and also allows vibration to be passed between the top and back plates.

many beginners may quit as a result of discomfort or pain while pressing on the string. This is why a properly done nut makes a big difference
