Solid Wood Construction
The Yamaha Stradivarius influenced beginners viola is made from solid woods, featuring a spruce and maple construction, which gives a much more rich and resonant sound in comparison to many other student model instruments. Built on to this handcrafted body are fittings and parts of high quality. An ebony fingerboard gives the performer a hard wood on which to play which is also resistant to moisture. The pegs and chinrest have been made from rosewood, another hardwood thats life expectancy is far greater than most woods.
Wittner Components and D'addario Strings
The Yamaha VA5S comes with high quality components that you would expect from a much higher value instrument. The tailpiece and fine tuners have been made by Wittner, who make top class components for string instruments. As well as this, D'addario strings have been added to the instrument to create a brilliant sound straight out of the box.
Everything You Need
Yamaha have made this viola in to a package so that you have everything you need to get going as soon as the instrument arrives. Included is a Brazilwood bow along with rosin, allowing the viola to be played straight out of the box. For storing and transporting the viola to rehearsals and concerts, the instrument comes with a shaped hard case that can carry everything you need to your venues.
