Viola 43,5cm - Edgar Russ, Cremona 1999
Shipping calculated at checkout.
This 43,5cm Viola is the best sounding Viola I have. I made it in 1999 for a friend, violist of Vienna Philarmonics. He is actually 2m tall and asked for a bigger one. But I knew that he plays on a 42cm viola. So I made a bigger one and made the string length just as a 42cm viola. This is the reason that Lena is still able to handle it evens it is actually far too big for her.
Usually such big viola lose the focus which usually only smaller ones have. But here I think it is perfect. Huge in sound and still a focused soloist viola which responds just great.
