This rare viola by Paolo Vettori is one of the most remarkable instruments we have seen. The craftsmanship is truly unique and the front plate is made out of 200-year-old wood. The one-piece back is also a marvel! The sound is rich, powerful and most importantly, balanced, which can be one of the most difficult aspects of a viola to get right. From the bottom of the C to the top of the A string, the viola sounds uniform and clear throughout.

Each instrument is unique

Paolo adds his personal touch to each of his instruments giving them a distinct personality and flair.

Historical Wood

The front of the viola is made with 200 year old reclaimed wood from a historical Florentine building selected by Paolo for its acoustic properties. It comes with its own dendrochronology report.
