The finest quality
When making the Loreato viola, Primavera make sure only to pick the highest quality materials. This is why the Lorato viola sits at the top of all Primavera instruments. This sort of quality is perfect for a student who is committed to achieving the higher grades and is considering studying the viola on an academic level. Similar to more expensive violas, the Primavera Loreato viola features a hand-carved maple and spruce body. These quality tonewoods are essential for producing a rich and rounded tone. The superfluous finish on the Loreato viola is achieved by hand applying a shaded antiqued varnish with a satin aspect.
Featuring an Ebony chinrest, pegs, and fingerboard, the fittings are not only stylish but very practical and high-quality. A lightweight carbon fibre tailpiece with smooth-action adjusters make the instrument easy to use and tune. Multi-filament steel strings have been used on the Loreato viola to give a feel similar to that of natural (high-quality) gut strings. These quality strings not only create a pleasing tone, but are also hardwearing.
Everything you need
To ensure that you have the best possible experience, Primavera have included everything you need to get started. To keep the viola safe, the Primavera Loreato comes with an oblong case that offers strong protection. On the outside of the case, you will find a robust handle and backpack straps for easy transportation. On the front of the case, there is a full length zipped pocket which is perfect for all of your sheet music and a smaller pocket for accessories. You will also find reflective material placed across the case to ensure that you can always be seen at night.
On the inside of the case, you will find that the viola has a perfectly snug fit. For an extra touch of protection, the inside is lined with a soft-touch material that won't scratch the finish of your viola. There is also a dedicated compartment for small accessories, such as the included rosin, and two bow holders. The composite bow includes an ebony frog with natural horsehair, making it durable, lightweight and very easy to use.
Primavera have been designing and manufacturing instruments since 1995 with an aim to revolutionise student string instruments. All Primavera instruments have been designed especially for primary school level teaching and come highly recommended by many teachers and schools.
