The Louis Carpini Viola is the top of the student level violas available in sizes 14", 15", 15.5", 16", and 16.5". Much more well-rounded than other student violas, with a warm voice and beautiful resonance. The smooth tone and full ringing notes, make the Louis Carpini a top choice viola for the learning violist. Players love the rich sound and the gorgeous flaming on these violas.
The Louis Carpini Viola is an upgrade from the Bunnel series with an unique oil finish and gorgeous tone, available in 15", 15-1/2", 16", and 16-1/2" sizes. Perfect for advancing students to intermediate players, this beautiful instrument offers truly amazing craftsmanship at an outstanding price. The Louis Carpini model is available for contract-free rental at our competitive rates.
What makes the Louis Carpini Viola a step up from basic beginner models is the higher quality in choice of woods, fittings, and detail work put into the instrument. Each of these investments improves the quality of the sound and increased playability.
Comparable to the Louis Carpini Violin, the Louis Carpini Viola is made with high-quality tight-grained spruce for the face plate and strong, dense maple for the back plate. The greater attention to detail applied to the final carving and finishing of the body ensures a deeper, more projective, and more resonant sound.
Our Louis Carpini Violas are strung with steel-core D'Addario Prelude Strings. These professional strings enhance the sound, projection, and tone of this great instrument, trumping the tinny, brash tone of generic strings normally provided by other instrument suppliers. These high-quality Prelude Strings are provided and installed at no extra cost. Optional upgrades to even higher-quality strings are also available with free installation.
