Hagen Weise 220 Viola 15.5"
This viola was made in the workshop of master luthier Hagen Weise. Weise has been active since 1991 when he commenced work for the Roderisch Paesold Company in Bubenreuth, Germany. In 2004 Weise successfully completed his master violin-making examination. Since 2010 Weise has been dedicated to making fine instruments in his own workshop located in Bubenreuth, Germany. This instrument comes with a certificate from the maker.
The Hagen 220 has a two piece, moderately flamed maple back & the top is made from spruce. This viola has a good cover of dark to golden brown varnish & has been lightly antiqued. The 220 has ebony fittings and a wittner tailpiece.
Overall this viola has a beautifully warm & rich sound. This instrument has a well-balanced sound & would be suitable for the high-level intermediate to advanced musician. This viola is currently fitted with Larsen ‘Virtuoso’ strings which add a touch of brightness & focus to the overall warmth & complexity of this instrument.
