Hello, thank you for checking my ad. I have a very unique instrument for sale. This is a 5-string viola which has an additional E-string so you can easily play violin repertoire on it. (Though, note that the it has a viola string length, so if you are a violin player you might need some time to get used to it!) It measures as approximately 15.5 inch viola.
This viola can also be strung A-D-G-C-F which will bring it to almost cello range.
This instrument is not light, but thank to light head it is well balanced and the heaviest part is at the middle-bottom of the instrument. The "opposite" stringing system is fantastic. It keeps precise tuning without need of fine tuners!
Viola is strung with d'addario electric strings (5-set, bought separately.The strings viola came with were total crap)
It also is upgraded with handmade "Strad" chinrest which cost 90.000won. This is the most comfy chinrest I've ever had. Many of my colleagues musicians say the same.
I also include the instrument case.
This instrument is "Active" and has a 9V battery inside, which means, among other benefits of "active" instrument, you can plug your earphones directly to the viola and practice at night.
This instrument is built for me by Czech luther Tomas Reiter. Please visit his website for more info. http://www.electricviolins.eu/
His instruments are hall handmade and customized and sound fantastic!
The only reason I decided to sell this instrument is that now days I only play acoustic and this beautiful instrument is never touched. I really wish it finds a new passionate and loving owner. You are more then welcome to try this instrument at my place.
In 2015 I paid over 1000.000 won for the instrument, shipping , taxes. I would let it go for its original price - 535 euros. Negotiable.
Thank you for your interest. Please feel free to ask any questions.
