The Bunnel Viola Outfit is perfect for the beginning violist. This viola has a warm tone and is available in 13", 14", 15", 15.5", 16", and 16.5" sizes. Bunnel Violas are made with select maple and spruce tonewoods. Detailed carving contributes to an instrument that is projective with superior tone quality.

The fine quality of the finished instrument comes from attention to detail. Many beginner violas are coated with a shiny, thick lacquer finish that dampens sound and affects the tone quality of the instrument. The Ricard Bunnel Viola, like our other instruments, are finished with a traditional, hand-rubbed oil and spirit varnish that is smoothly polished. The oil finish complements the maple and spruce body of the instrument, allowing the sound to resonate clearly and with greater projection.

Whether you are a young student or an adult, the knowledgeable members of our customer service team can help fit you with the viola size you need. As violas are larger and longer than violins, it can sometimes be difficult to determine the right size to match your arm length. Whether you visit us in the store or speak with us over the phone, we can help you find your match!
