Viola based on Anselmo Bellosio

This small viola is open, responsive and easy to play, with a mellowness you wouldn’t naturally expect from a viola of this size.



This is one of my most successful viola models. Like the original, the sound is good overall, despite its small size, and although it is not all that much bigger than a violin, so it is easy for violinists and small violists to play, it also has a proper viola sound.
