A fully carved European instrument.
The Knilling Bucharest Viola is crafted from select spruce and well-seasoned, figured maple with inlaid purfling. Ebony trim includes pegs, nut, fingerboard, tailpiece, saddle and endpin. Fully shop adjusted, Perfection pegs with four Buschman tuners, German maple bridge and D’Addario Prelude strings. Outfit includes thermoplastic case with aluminum valance, Glasser fiberglass bow, rosin, and pitchpipe.
Perfection Planetary Pegs closely match the size, shape, and weight of conventional pegs, thus retaining the physical integrity and traditional appearance of the instrument. The internal fine-tuning mechanism provides for easy, fast and accurate tuning without the use of string adjusters and virtually eliminates sticking or slippage. Nearly two decades of research and development, and extensive field-testing ensure reliable performance and durability.
