The OVA80 represents our step-up model from the entry-level with upgraded quality in materials and build. All instruments are carefully examined and set-up by professional luthiers before they are delivered.
Solid Tonewood in Gloss Finish
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.
Adjusted Nut Height & Curvature
shaped to fit each individual violin for ease of tuning and to prevent pegs slipping
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
Every OVA80 violas are individually assembled, set up, and inspected by our experienced luthiers before the instrument is sent away. This way, we ensure all of our violist get a proper experience playing on their viola instrument.
