How To Find The Perfect Size Viola For You
Finding the right size viola is crucial to ensure a comfortable playing experience. The best way to measure this would be to hold your arm out straight and measure the distance from your neck to the palm of your hand. The 16.5'' model is suitable for adults - approximately 66cm.
Ebony is a popular wood, known best for the clear, crisp attacks it is capable of producing. This wood is generally much brighter than maple and has a similar density too. Ebony also features oilier pores than maple and extra brittle grains, resulting in a tight grain that doesn't require any finish. This quality gives the fingerboard a natural smooth, quick playing ability favored by many professionals. Although there are many types of wood used to create fingerboards, ebony is the darkest of them all. The wood works effectively throughout the instrument's range and is reliable for years.
The Yamaha VA7SG Viola comes equipped with a case to protect the instrument from damage while it travels. Whether you're going to school, rehearsal, gigs or concerts, this case will protect your viola from scratches and knocks, keeping it looking, feeling, and sounding like new for longer. The viola also comes with a Brazilian wood bow to enable players to practise as soon as their viola arrives. Also included in the outfit is Schwarz rosin, so that players can maintain the high quality of their instrument for longer.
