The Revelle 530 viola—based on a Mirecourt pattern—provides a subtle, yet powerful sound thanks to its construction with fine, European wood. An entirely hand-made workshop instrument, it’s an ideal step-up instrument providing reliable and consistent performance at a terrific value. Available sizes from 11” to 16”.
Wood: Fine Russian spruce top and well-flamed maple back naturally air-dried for 5-10 years.
Varnish: Hand-applied quality spirit varnish with a mildly antiqued finish.
Strings: Alphayue or “Alpha” viola strings are a game-changing breakthrough design for advancing violists. Brilliant in overtones with a full and dark fundamental sound, they respond immediately to the bow and provide beautiful projection and power. They also offer a left-hand feel which is gentle and easy, break in quickly and stay in tune, are extremely sweat-proof and quite durable.
Professionally installed and 100% sound adjusted in the U.S. for reliable and comfortable playability and optimal sound.
