Endeavour 'Maestro' Viola - All Sizes

"Don’t be pressured into following what’s considered to be the norm. If you’re going to choose a profession like being a musician or an artist, you just have to remain true to who you are. I really believe that if you’re sincere and genuine about something, it will work out in the end. " -Diana Yukawa



Endeavour 'Maestro' violas are the highest level violas in the Endeavour range. They are hand-carved, and hand varnished in China to quality specifications of The String Workshop.
These violas stand out from other brands of 'heavy' and 'dull' violins which are swamping today's market.

ONLY $1495 !!!

Endeavour violas are extremely light-weight and produce an alive, clear and beautiful resonance which far exceeds the tone of other violins in this price range. Made from carefully selected fine-grained and seasoned tonewoods, hand carved, and then carefully vanished by hand with traditional oil varnish. 

Each instrument is personally set-up by Phil Whitehead and adjusted for perfect playability, and for a beautifully rich and balanced tone. An excellent instrument for any higher level player.
