The Stentor Student II 12" SH Viola is ideal for students who need an instrument to practice and perform with quality.
The Stentor Student II Viola is recommended for students because it offers a reliable, consistent performance, allowing to develop the learning process with an excellent sound.
This instrument is carved from quality woods with good acoustic properties. The top is in solid spruce, the bottom and sides are in maple, the same wood from which the arm is made.
The fretboard is in ebony which gives it a classic look and greater resistance. The pegs are in rosewood, a noble wood, originally from South America. The Stentor II 12" SH Student viola is finished in a medium brown lacquer for a classic, natural look.
The quality of construction of the bow was also not neglected, having been designed for students, the walnut is made of ebony.
The viola de arco emerged at the end of the 14th century, and was one of the string instruments that developed at the time, and which resulted in the violin family. The viola is tuned a fifth lower than the violin (C3 G3 D4 A4).
Stentor's Student Series is recognized by teachers as a quality choice for students of all levels.
Stentor has been involved with string instruments since 1895, initially importing and selling instruments for orchestras, until it started its own production following the high standards it had with the instruments it resold. Many musicians who today shine in UK orchestras began their apprenticeship on a Stentor.
The Stentor Student II viola is 12 inches in size to adjust to the size of students, and thus perform their pieces and exercises with greater comfort and ease.
