For students “stepping up” to a quality instrument, there is no better choice than Sofia Sylvanus Viola. Crafted in Europe, from aged European spruce and maple, Sylvanus violins and violas benefit from the ageless luthiers traditions of the master. Sylvanus also benefits from the fine finish work done at the Sofia shop in Indianapolis, Indiana by a master craftsman who understand how every instrument, even at the student level, must perform very well and nurture each player’s ability to grow musically.
Sylvanus instruments feature a robust sound and a level of finishing well worth the Sofia name. Tightly grained aged spruce and fine maple are custom graduated to achieve a level of performance that will grow as the player advances. Full ebony trim and a subtle red-brown varnish showcases the instrument’s potential.
