12″ Viola (1/2 Kreutzer A700 violin anno 2016) from Day Violins. Customized by Adam Day for my daughter to play as a 12″ viola. Has hypo-allergenic Wittner side-mount chinrest and Wittner Finetune pegs for easy tuning for little hands. Has a fine tuner on the tailpiece for the a-string only. Has been lovingly maintained with all string checks and sound checks completed on schedule. Has a wonderful played-in warmth as she loves to practice. Current strings are about 5 months old and are due for a string check at the end of this month. Played on average an hour to 1 1/2 hours per day. May be purchased with or without bow (she used the same bow for violin and viola). Bow is a 1/2 size Pernambuco, also purchased at Day Violins and sound matched for this viola and her 1/2 size violin which will also be listed on this page. Bow will need rehairing. Instrument comes with basic student case as shown in photos. Originally purchased for $2195 (including upgrades and labor for customization). Asking $1800. Price is negotiable (if you want the bow, etc.) .
This viola beats any 12″ viola in town for projection, warmth, responsiveness, and overall sound quality. Anytime she plays it we are stopped and asked where we purchased such a lovely instrument because it sounds amazing for such a small instrument.
