The Po River PA140R Viola bridges your player from their student instrument to a more advanced viola. Handcrafted in their workshop in Romania, the model 140 is varnished in a golden brown antique spirit finish. A European Spruce top and hand carved European flamed Maple back and sides are integral to this instrument’s tone. This viola includes seasoned ebony fittings, a German made Wittner Ultra Tailpiece, and a seasoned French Maple Bridge. Po River has strung up this instrument with Thomastik Dominants. Because of this, the violas sounds rich and vibrant. The Po River PA140R Viola is protected in an oblong case with suspension, hygrometer and 4 bow holders.
