#9.GRACE 16 inch Natural Viola with Case and Bow + Free Rosin


The really amazing product so far. High-quality viola and bow with a sturdy case. I was afraid that because of the price I wouldn't get something high quality, but I was very mistaken. It also came with a tuner, batteries for the tuner, rosin, a music stand, and two shoulder cradles.

However, the rosin arrived completely broken and I spent close to an hour melting it back into a usable mass and cleaning the spoon I used. Seller may consider wrapping rosin more securely for future orders.

#1.D Z Strad Viola Model 101 Handmade with Case and Bow-15 Inch


I love the viola , 14 years old and I am a beginner at playing the viola but I already knew I loved it so much I got a professional one. So the product is overall beautifully made with great shipping speed and nothing was damaged whats so ever. It was also wrapped very securely and confidently, the bow is wonderful and just completes the whole package. It's made out of horse hair but when you play on it makes the most wonderful sounds. The case is wonderfully secure for the viola to be put in as well with the bow it comes with a cover so the bow and viola won't collide. There are straps included with,the case and light rosin that is made in America. I didn't particularly like light rosin but this kind sounds a wonderful and gives it that mystical and warm feeling I love listening to. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IT.
