Double stopping is playing two strings simultaneously, producing a chord. You'll notice that the instruments' ranges overlap considerably: the viola (pitched a fifth lower than a violin) can play quite high up in the violin range, to good effect, while all four instruments are capable of covering the G3-G4 register. At least one viola of this model is now being played professionally. All instruments are completed exclusively in our workshop by a highly skilled and experienced luthier who is also an accomplished musician on violin, viola, and cello.

With custom, handcrafted instruments designed and built in the USA, we are dedicated to a truly unique concept in manufacturing. Over the course of the past 30 years in violin making and restoration I have come across a large number of pre-18th-century violins, violas and celli that did not abide by the modern standard of stop length and neck length, which in combination determine the playing string length of a given instrument.

You'll find violins, cellos, violas, double basses, harps, and other stringed instruments exquisite in appearance and tone. The consideration here is the trade off between how easy it is to thread the end of the string into the string hole in the peg, vs weakening the peg with a slightly larger hole, and wondering if it might break somewhere down the line, causing a lot of inconvenience for the owner of the instrument. The Zyex recently became available for bass and is well worth a try.

However, if you are in the intermediate or very good level, do not buy strings as a package. The violin produces louder notes when the player either moves the bow faster or pushes down harder on the string. There were two main types of viola at this stage - the alto and the tenor (see 'Different Violas By Size' section for an explanation). As a trusted retailer of hard-to-find strings, we carry only brand name, high-quality strings.

If you look at Thomastik's tension figures, you'll see that medium Spirocores are much more tense even than stark Dominants! If that's the "contralto viola" of 1660-1670 ca. from the State Collection in Moscow, the body length is 416mm, about 16.38 inches.

How do you get a violin to sound like a viola? Violas are thicker than violins because they have a lower range, and that is also the reason why they are bigger. The viola is larger than the violin and therefor requires more effort to produce the strong rich tone the viola is known for. The tuning head is flat, with friction pegs or machine tuners. Animato Strings’ customers can visit the on-site workshop and watch experts at work, setting up new instruments or servicing older instruments.
