Patina Strings is dedicated to hand-crafted instrument making and exclusively using only top quality tonewoods, making this Patina Series 520 "Notre Dame" Viola one of the best sounding and most dependable entry level violins on the market- at an unbelievable price!

The beautiful "Notre Dame" Viola pays homage to the great Neo-Gothic era French Luthier J.B. Vuillaume (7 October 1798 – 19 March 1875), who crafted detailed fittings for the fine Italian instruments that would come through his shop.  He also pioneered the antiquing process, making copies of old instruments made by the Italian masters like Stradivarius and Guarneri.  

This fully carved Patina Model PTV520 "Notre Dame" Viola features hand-carved boxwood fittings with a decorative cherub tailpiece and matching pegs. This violin is conceivably a beginner's instrument, and is available in full or abbreviated sizes for that reason. However, it is truly aimed at the advancing student, as it has features rarely found in student instruments. The decorative appointments instill a pride of ownership and personal touch that will surely inspire practice and improvement.
