Amati 1625 Viola

Amati 1625

Available to view and buy at Bridgewood and Neitzert


I completed this viola as part of my Newark Degree, I used the Amati 1625 Viola as a basis, I made some changes to the original in order to make the viola more compatible with modern setup and repertoire. The ‘ff’ holes are redesigned in the Amati style to be a little bit larger, the arching high has been increased, and is styled slightly Brescian in character, in order to develop the sound of the instrument.
