Tertis Viola 15 inch 2014

"“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”" -Plato



A beautiful "Tertis" viola. Made in 2014 by Virtuoso Strings, model number JT253.

Had just one previous owner who was a professional musician, and kept it in perfect/mint condition.  This viola is a "Tertis" , so just 15 inches in length but with an extra wide body to enhance the tone into a full and powerful rich colour.  High grade spruce belly, and beautiful flamed maple back and sides.  It is beautifully crafted from choice tonewoods and finished with a beautiful oil varnish.

What is a "Tertis" Viola?
In the 1930s, Lionel Tertis, the most influential violist of the 20th century, created a unique design for a viola that allowed for a big, viola sound, yet was easy to navigate by smaller or younger players. The result is a viola with a small upper bout for maneuverability and a large lower bout for big sound. This "Tertis" viola is based on Tertis's design.
