Description: This Amati model viola is fashioned from one-piece, Bosnian-maple back, sides and scroll. Beautifully figured flames run horizontally across the back of this slab-cut back. The top is from two-piece Italian spruce with med-wide grains which are even across the top. The varnish is a red-brown color on a golden ground. This Amati model has been in our family for generations, going back to Carl Becker Sr.
The sound is powerful and penetrating with a rich and sonorous voice. Back Length: 40.9 cm (16 1/8 in.) String length: 36.85 cm. (14.5 in.)
