Instrument Type: Viola
Bow Type: --
Maker: Paulus Pilat
Description: Paulus Pilat was born in Budapest, Hungary in the year 1897. In 1921, Pilat moved to New York to expand his already successful violin making career. This viola is his opus # 318, made in LA in 1954. The viola is patterned after a J.B.Guadagnini from 1767. Length: 42.7 cm. Fantastic sound, powerful and rich as you would expect from a larger viola. Not an exceptionally broad model so the playability is quite nice.
