Designed by a violist and inspired by the great 17th century violas of northern Italy and the Tyrol, VLA has a medium to dark contralto sound that is as easily modulated with bow pressure as it is with bow speed, yet won't lose focus under load. Response under the bow is prompt and agile, with projection that can cut through and be heard without difficulty. Smaller sizes have been specifically designed to minimize acoustic compromises ordinarily associated with smaller violas. Listen to an unedited, unprocessed sample below (a device with quality speakers or headphones is recommended.)
