A very nice viola, made by Master Luthier Ulf Kloo in his workshop in Béziers, France. This viola is the Op. 63 from 2011 and it is made from the maker’s own model. It was made to facilitate the playing of demanding repertoire, and to have a very expressive voice. The body length is 40,5 cm (16 inches) and the vibrating string length is 27 cm. The maple for the back and sides was cut around 1950. This viola sounds wonderful in all registers and would suit violists of any level. The viola comes certified by the luthier.View Instrument
A beautiful violin, made by Master Luthier Ulf Kloo in his workshop in Béziers, France. This violin is the Op. 66 from 2017 is inspired by Stradivari’s golden period. The back and sides are made from a carefully selected Bosnian bird’s eye maple and give the violin a wonderful character. Very easy to play on, it will respond extremely well to the violinist’s input. It has been played in concert halls and has very good projection throughout all registers. This violin would be perfect for a budding violinist looking for a great violin to launch their career. The violin comes certified by the luthier.View Instrument
