Viola silver medal winner, 2014

The model for his viola is completely self-designed. The idea was to create an instrument with a big body that is nevertheless very comfortable to play. Despite the body length being 420mm, the actual string length is only 373mm. This viola has a very powerful sound with a huge capacity for modulation. It also made a big impression on the jury members of the 7th International Violin Making Competition in Mittenwald in 2014. I was awarded the silver medal for this viola
