The Revelle 630 viola—due to its construction of master-grade, beautifully flamed maple back and carefully selected Russian spruce top—produces powerful and refined tones and dark and earthy nuance. It’s an ideal viola for a budding performer. Available in 15” and 16” sizes.
- Wood: Fine Russian spruce top and well-flamed maple back naturally air-dried for 15-20 years.
- Varnish: Hand-applied, finest quality spirit varnish with a lightly antiqued finish.
- Fittings: French-made Despiau one-tree bridge, Wittner-style tailpiece, and well-aged ebony pegs.
- Strings: Known world-wide as the “reference standard,” Dominant strings—made with a highly flexible, multi-strand synthetic core—provide the tonal warmth and feel of a gut string while being impervious to changes in humidity. The sound is soft, clear with a stable intonation and they are rich in overtones.
