The Kennedy Violins Difference

What makes Kennedy Violins string instruments the best on the market? First we purchase each viola directly from the maker — a rare and highly effective business practice that lowers our cost and allows us to pass the savings to you. Next, all final assembly and FREE setup is performed locally in our Washington State shop by our professionally trained luthier staff. NO assembly or setup is required with an instrument that is ready to play from the moment you open the case. With both the highest-rated violins and customer service in the U.S., we are the only company confident enough to back up our instruments with our lifetime warranty and 45-day money-back guarantee. Experience the Kennedy Violins difference today!

Final Carving

The open, responsive sound of the Anton Gerard Viola is a result of time-intensive precision in the final carving of the top and back plates. Made with high-grade, aged spruce and beautifully flamed maple tonewoods, the plates are measured and graduated with measured thicknesses that promote the best sound possible.

Professional Setup

Great attention to detail is also paid to the final setup of the Anton Gerard Viola. A certified luthier from the Kennedy Violins staff hand-carves and notches the bridge to accentuate the acoustics of the instrument. Bridge feet are carefully shaped with sharp knives to fully contact and fit the curvature of the viola face. Properly fit bridge feet promote a clear tone and strong projection. 

Highest-quality fittings including the tailpiece, pegs, chinrest with gold-toned brackets, and fingerboard are beautifully carved from 100% high-grade ebony. An authentic French Aubert bridge supports professional-grade D’Addario Helicore D, G, and C strings with a Larsen A string that offers a warmer tone for treble playing.
