The critical early learning stages in a string players' career demands the finest of instruments. A viola must be responsive and easy to play, while being reliable and sturdy enough to withstand the wear and tear of school and rental programs, too. All Cremona Premier Student violas are fully shop adjusted and conform to all NAfME recommended standards for what makes a great and inspiring student instrument. The SVA-165's polished east Indian rosewood fittings and fingerboard make for the perfect combination when paired with the select hand-carved and graduated tonewoods - marking the minimum level of quality for this and other outfits that make up the entire Premier Student Series. Each one is supplied with high-quality Prelude strings by D'Addario, a exceptional quality Brazilwood bow by J.LaSalle, and our super-light and strong TL-33 case. Cremona violas will satisfy!
