Product Description

The Louis Carpini Viola is an upgrade from the Bunnel series with an unique oil finish and gorgeous tone, available in 15", 15-1/2", 16", and 16-1/2" sizes. Perfect for advancing students to intermediate players, this beautiful instrument offers truly amazing craftsmanship at an outstanding price. The Louis Carpini model is available for contract-free rental at our competitive rates.

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!

Superior Materials

What makes the Louis Carpini Viola a step up from basic beginner models is the higher quality in choice of woods, fittings, and detail work put into the instrument. Each of these investments improves the quality of the sound and increased playability.

Comparable to the Louis Carpini Violin, the Louis Carpini Viola is made with high-quality tight-grained spruce for the face plate and strong, dense maple for the back plate. The greater attention to detail applied to the final carving and finishing of the body ensures a deeper, more projective, and more resonant sound.

Upgraded Bow

As part of the complete outfit provided with the Louis Carpini Viola (case, bow, rosin, etc.) you will receive an upgrade to our Giuliani Grade 1 Brazilwood Bow made with real horsehair, highlighted with silver-wound lapping, and genuine mother of pearl eye and bow slides.

Free Professional Setup

One of the most valuable free services we offer at Kennedy Violins is the instrument setup and final construction of every stringed instrument we offer. A trained luthier gives quality one-on-one attention to your viola. Carving, finishing, smoothing, installing, shaping, polishing, measuring, and inspecting every part of your viola ensures both great playability and a great sound. The Louis Carpini Viola is handled with extra care to enhance its tone and preserve its beautiful vibrant finish.


Our Louis Carpini Violas are strung with steel-core D'Addario Prelude Strings. These professional strings enhance the sound, projection, and tone of this great instrument, trumping the tinny, brash tone of generic strings normally provided by other instrument suppliers. These high-quality Prelude Strings are provided and installed at no extra cost. Optional upgrades to even higher-quality strings are also available with free installation.
