Comments about Cremona SVA-175 Premier Student Series Viola Outfit:
This viola is a great value for the money. You get a nice case, a very high quality bow, and a very large cake of dark rosin (You may want to get some light rosin if you live in a humid climate). The case is a bit oversized-- the viola has some room to move. It has two bow holders, a pocket for music, a pocket for accessories (Not too much room for anything larger than a shoulder rest), and a humidity gauge. The bow is wonderful. It is made of beautiful woods (Brazilwood stick with ebony frog), and helps produce a round tone. The bow is very comfortable to hold as well, and is properly balanced. The viola itself is also high quality. It has an antiqued light brown varnish, with ebony pegs, chinrest, saddle, and fingerboard. The tailpiece is black metal with four brass fine tuners. The top is a very high quality spruce with a perfectly straight grain. The back, neck, scroll, and sides are plain maple, with no knots or other imperfections. The viola's sound is also very warm and open, and the usually soft C and G strings are very resonant. The bridge and pegs are properly fitted. Neatly inlaid purfling adds durability to the instrument.
