David Yale Viola Outfit

These David Yale violas are a great choice for the advancing player! This Strad-style viola is constructed with carefully selected aged spruce on the top and beautifully flamed maple on the back and sides. 

Each handcrafted David Yale viola starts with fine tonewood aged a minimum of 10 years that is carefully crafted into a fine viola. The attention to detail is evident in the perfect inlay of the purfling and precise graduations and arching. The resulting voicelike sound 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 chin rest brackets, and a single fine-tuner. The fingerboard is beautifully carved from 100% high-grade ebony. An authentic French Aubert Deluxe bridge supports professional-grade Thomastik-Infeld Rondo strings.
