Introducing the Stentor Student II viola
Recommended by teachers and music services for its quality and reliability, the Stentor Student II viola is a wonderful instrument for the advancing student and is a real step up from the Student I model. The viola is carved from solid tonewoods, in Stentor's unique workshop environment, with a spruce front and maple back, neck and ribs. This produces an instrument with good tone, a responsive sound and reliable performance.
The pegs, nut and saddle are ebony to allow much better overall playability and tuning stability and the viola is fitted with flexible core strings and a quality composite tailpiece with integral adjusters. The ebony body and fingerboard provide excellent form and stability that are crucial when learning a new instrument. The varnish on this viola is gold-brown coloured and all Stentor's instruments have inlaid purfling.
