Whats included

This Westbury Viola Outfit includes a full host of accessories, allowing the player to get going as soon as the instrument arrives. An octagonal brazilwood bow gives an ideal weight distribution right across the bow and in turn produces better control overall. Also included is a French style Despiau bridge which is fitted by hand. The AF033 Dart Shaped Case is ideal for travelling players. Whether you're going to school, rehearsal, gigs or concerts, this case will protect your instrument from scratches and knocks, keeping it looking, feeling, and sounding like new for longer.

Build Quality

The body of the instrument has been made from Maple and Spruce wood, which gives a full and resonant sound. These high-quality tonewoods have then been handcrafted and manufactured to give every one special character and optimum tone. The instrument is then varnished to a high quality, for optimum protection. Ebony fittings are a popular choice of tonewood, known best for delivering clear, crisp attacks. This wood is generally much brighter than maple and provides a similar density. Ebony also features oilier pores than maple and extra brittle grains, resulting in a tight grain that doesn't require any finish. This quality gives the frog a natural smooth, quick playing ability favored by many professionals. Although there are many types of wood used to create bow frogs, ebony is the darkest of them all. The wood works effectively throughout the instrument's range and is reliable for years.
