My new violas
I received three violas from kkmusicstore today. I was seriously impressed with the first one that I opened. The bows are junk, the case is cheap but looks great non-the-less, and the end pin sticks out way too much. Also the sound-post is real crocked but I don't dare move it because the feet are flat at that angle. The instrument itself is beautiful, real inlaid purfling, and nice grains in the wood. The sound is great even with the bad sound-post and cheap strings. Look forward to opening the other two boxes and doing a review on all three violas tomorrow.
