Viola outfit with quality woods.

Having the right tools is the most important thing when starting out on any instrument, and naturally a quality instrument is chief among those tools. The hand-carved Maple Leaf Strings 130 viola is designed to give you the best possible start to your journey in music. Available in 15" through 16.5" (select from dropdown menu).

These instruments are designed for the beginning string student. With any Maple Leaf Strings instrument, essential elements like an ebony fingerboard and genuine purfling are presumed. Maple Leaf then scoops the top below the purfle line, a feature usually reserved for higher-level instruments, and then hand applies an oil varnish.

A protective case and a graphite bow complete the package, giving the young violist Viola outfit with a proper, cost-effective start.
