Tell me about this instrument:

This is a small viol shaped instrument with a swell back.

How small is small?

The steeply raked shoulders make playing this instrument incredibly easy - even for those players of a smaller stature.

What about the string length?

For those with a small left hand the 103.6cm string length is as perfect as one will ever find.

Is the instrument made as nicely as it looks?

Yes indeed. The maple used for the back, ribs and scroll is nicely figured and the quality of making and finish is pretty impressive.

Is it completely handmade and hand finished?

Yes sir. Yes madam.

What about the sound?

Although this is a small instrument it pushes out a really big sound of considerable quality.

How far will this instrument take me in my studies?

If you are a student it should easily take you all the way through full time music college. If you are of an older generation the instrument would be perfect for the good amateur orchestra and the odd semi-pro engagement.

Wow I am impressed. It sounds like this instrument represents very good value for money. Can you give me a summary?

If you are looking for a smallish instrument that's much, much more special than any commercially available instrument then this could well be of interest. Just imagine giving your son or daughter something that will really inspire them to greater things in their music making.
