23 Mar 2015 United States 1937 French Viola - 16 1/4" (41 cm)

For sale is my French Viola made in 1937, purchased from Hans Weissar in LA in 2006. As I haven't played it recently, it's been fitted with a new bridge and had the neck adjusted. It's currently on consignment at Rolland Feller's shop in San Francisco for those wishing to test it. Very warm, rich sound and deep C string. Perfect for a college or university music student or advanced young player. Unfortunately no photo! Two piece back. No ivory. Was recently appraised for $7,000.

Price: $6,900

09 Mar 2015 United Kingdom 16 3/4 Viola

Beautiful Viola, chosen for me by my professor at the time, James Sleigh. I am sadly selling it as I have another viola now but I am very attached and would like to see it go to a good home. It was my second viola, meant to be a good instrument to play at a 'recreational orchestra' level. It is made of lovely dark wood and makes a beautiful mellow sound. I chose the instrument for the particularly beautiful sound it makes. Selling together with bow, case, spare string, shoulder rest

This viola is 42 mm long (easy to play like a 41 mm).Very nice red-orange varnish on yellow background. The sound on the C-string is exceptional, very round and warm. The viola is in a perfect condition. Its normal price is 10000 euros on the market but I need to sell it quickly, hence the very low price.
