Comments about Knilling 116VA Sebastian Paris Artist Series Viola Outfit:

Happy with the purchase.

I prefer not to comment on a product until I have had it for awhile. I get a little miffed with people who write rave reviews about something they just got; and how about people who never even owned the product! But GC requested a review and I feel like this viola is worthy of my time. The viola was shipped to my house within 3 days of purchase. The case it comes with if very nice. The flamed (maple?) back and spruce top present well together. The upgraded strings sound nice. The horse hair bow is similar to the bow we already have. The rosin is junk, just throw it in the trash and get some good stuff because you will not get any sound out of the viola without rosin on the bow. (So don't freak out that your new viola doesn't make sounds like I did :) Fortunately my oldest son had some good rosin for his cello and saved the day.) I have purchased this viola for one of my sons who will be going into High School next year. I wanted him to have something better than the cheapo starter viola that he has been playing (which is way too small for him now) but did not want to buy a $1200-$2000 instrument or spend $250+ a year renting one.
So for now I give this viola 4 stars. Hopefully several years from now I can give it 5.
