VIOLA by Nate Tabor, 2014, Vienna 

This 16 inch viola was bought directly from the Luthier and has had one owner, a Conservatoire student, since new. It is light and comfortable to play and produces a deep, rich tone.

It has been played extensively in a very wide variety of classical music settings and has found its voice. It currently has a set of Evah Pirazzi strings on it. During the last four years it has been regularly serviced and had any small running repairs attended to by a private, specialist instrument repairer. The current owner has enjoyed great success with this viola but is now ready to move on to a different instrument, hence the sale.

It will be very suitable for a Conservatoire student or a young beginning professional.

Offers in the region of £3,500
