16 1/4" Elmsly viola, Auckland 2016

SKU: S328

Specialist viola maker Anthony Elmsly completed this fine example of his work in 2016. With a body length of 41.3cm (41.6 over the arch) this is a classic and very manageable instrument, with the design based on some of the most successful alto-sized models in history, the much copied “Conte Vitale” and “Primrose” violas by Andrea Guarneri. The oil-based varnish is a warm brown colour and the tone is strong and even across its whole range.
