Product Description

Kennedy Violins is proud to be a certified distributor of authentic Kremona violas by KREMONA-BULGARIA Ltd.* These distinguished Kremona Studio violas are imported from the original Kremona lutherie in Bulgaria, founded in 1924. Each instrument is handmade in the Stradivari design by master luthier Hristo Nikolov and his luthier team using models and designs by the most renowned makers. View this impressive video about the origin and construction of Kremona instruments. 

A Tradition of Excellence

Kremona, a brand of highest reputation, creates each instrument with meticulous attention to detail. Traditional techniques, varnish recipes, exceptional setup, precise fittings, and the finest, well-seasoned tone woods from the Balkan regions combine in the creation of these superb instruments. The detailed workmanship that goes into Kremona instruments is reflected in their immaculate quality and magnificent sound.

Superb Playability

Not only are Kremona violas exquisite in appearance and sound, but the comfortable playabiity and feel of the instrument is a testament to the incredible precision with which they are built. The upper register projects just as clearly as the lower with an evenness in tone rarely matched by instruments at much higher price points. Professional performers describe the sound of Kremona V2 as sweet, strong, projective, and dark. The ease of playability is phenomenal, even in the highest positions.

The Kremona V2 Viola

The Kremona V2 Viola is an upgrade from the V3, made with more select aged tone woods with more flame. The V2 is a model made with a Stadivarius design that is perfect for advancing performers. The authentic European touch is evident in the use of high-grade, aged Balkan maple and spruce tonewoods. The Kremona V2 Viola has an incredibly rich, warm sound, a result of Kremona’s excellent craftsmanship and precise carving of the top and bottom plates. The aged Balkan tonewoods are tightly grained, increasing the resonance of the instrument's expressive voice. A high-grade Balkan spruce soundboard adds to the projection and tone quality of the instrument. This superb viola is an excellent choice for solo performance with its focused and authoritative tone and responsiveness to the slightest nuances in technical prowess. 

Viola Features

The Kremona V2 Viola is resplendent in tone with a classic look, embellished with 100% high-grade ebony fittings and beautifully colored with choice spirit varnish. Inlaid mother-of-pearl embellishments accent the pegs, button, and tailpiece. The high-grade French Aubert Bridge also improves acoustics. Smooth, detailed, and even carving of the plates creates exceptional projection, sonority, and warmth of sound. The V2 is fit for advanced solo and orchestral violists. This viola features
