    About this Model

    Lionel Tertis was the greatest viola player of the 20th century. Tertis preferred a large viola in order to get an especially rich tone from his instrument. Knowing that some would find a 17-1/8 inch instrument too large he created his own Tertis model, which provides many of the tonal advantages of the larger instrument in a manageable 16 to 16-3/4 inch size.

    And so we have created this model to allow all violist to be able to enjoy a viola in this form. To advance this further, we've made it in different sizes, from as small as 15 inch. We observe even at this smaller size, there are obvious advantages using this shape. Made with European spruce for tone enhancement, the response is outstanding and sophisticated. This viola has been purchased and used by many professionals in their music orchestras either through us or our resellers, and the feedback has been commendable so far. Oil varnished.
