The Nicholas Gand viola is perfect for the advanced viola student
aspiring towards a future in music and needs an instrument that
will carry them through high school or college. Built with the finest
woods, it is truly a beautiful instrument.
Nicholas Gand violas are a joy for any violist to play. These violas feature aged tone woods of the highest quality. The wood is grown in cold, high climates. Not only are all Gands made completely by hand, but each viola is crafted by one master maker, instead of the "parting out" method, where each part is made by a separate person. Each Gand is varnished with a beautiful French oil finish, that is not only glorious to look at, but enables each viola to resonate to its full potential. These violas are custom fitted with a genuine, French Despiau bridge. These bridges allow the player to easily manipulate even the smallest tone color.
The sound of the viola is typically described by our professional viola testers as: sweet, strong projective and dark.
We purchase directly from the maker. This means our prices cannot be beat and you'll always get higher quality for the money.
All Student violins are hand inspected and set up by a professional luthier and meet or exceed all MENC specifications. When you receive your violin, it will be ready to play; not in pieces as many instruments are from other web sites.
All Student Violins have a 45 day money back guarantee of complete satisfaction.
