Viola 16 1/4″ by Justin C. White, Australia 2016
The tone of this viola is resonant and rich in overtones with good projection. It is strong in the G and C strings, and in the upper registers. The sound is open and voluminous. It is a big, full sound.
It has a striking bear claw spruce top and a beautiful two-piece back that is lightly flamed. The viola has been finished with a red brown varnish.
