Patina PTA135 Product Grouping



Patina is dedicated to hand-crafted instrument making exclusively using only top quality tonewoods, making this Patina Model 135 Upgraded Student Viola one of the best sounding and most dependable entry level violins on the market- at an unbelievable price! Our Patina viola outfits have received superior reviews from school music directors, private studio teachers and conscientious parents on a budget.  The Patina Model 135 is a step up from the Eastman Model 100, and comes with a graphite composite bow, which is stronger and lighter than a fiberglass bow.

All of our Patina violas are shop adjusted in the workshop of The Instrument Place for consistency, tone quality and ease of playability.  In fact, all of the stringed instruments from The Instrument Place are set up by our experienced professionals to meet or exceed MENC standards & specifications.  

This fully carved Patina Series 135 Apprentice Viola is entirely hand-crafted from solid tonewoods, featuring a seasoned spruce top with hand-inlaid purfling and flamed curly-maple back, ribs and scroll.  The set-up includes a lightweight Otto tailpiece with four integrated fine tuners and quality D'Addario Prelude strings.  As a teacher approved favorite, this viola comes exclusively with the highest grade ebony tuning pegs, ebony chinrest, ebony fingerboard and professionally fitted European maple bridge. The outfit includes an upgraded oblong case w/ canvas cover, an upgraded Graphite Composite bow with genuine horsehair, shoulder pad, polishing cloth, rosin and name tag.

Our Patina Strings upgraded student violas offer an unmatched quality of sound and playability, while maintaining the price of an entry level instrument.
