Introducing the Nikola Zubak viola, a fantastic viola for the advancing player! This viola is constructed with carefully selected aged spruce on the top and beautifully flamed maple on the back and sides. It comes with ebony fittings with boxwood trim on the pegs and tailpiece. The Zubak Viola is available in sizes 15", 15-1/2", 16", and 16-1/2".
Each handcrafted Zubak viola starts as fine tonewood aged a minimum of 10 years and is carefully crafted into a fine viola for the advancing player. The attention to detail is evident in the perfect inlay of the purfling and precise graduations and arching. The resulting sound is a beautiful, voicelike sound that can project and carry across the hall. The C string is powerful but warm, and the upper register carries a lot of volume while maintaining a sweet tone.
Great attention to detail is also paid to the final setup. A certified luthier from the Kennedy Violins staff hand-carves and notches the bridge to accentuate the acoustics of the instrument. Bridge feet are carefully shaped to fully contact and fit the curvature of the viola face, promoting a clear tone and strong projection.
This instrument is set up with high-quality fittings, chrome brackets, and a single fine-tuner. The fingerboard is beautifully carved from 100% high-grade ebony. An authentic French Aubert bridge supports professional-grade D’Addario Helicore D, G, and C strings with a Larsen A string that offers a warmer tone for treble playing.
