G.X.Deng Violin

G.X.Deng Violin G.X.Deng Violin

This violin is around 15 years old. I never got round to playing it, and has only been played for about 30 minutes or so in it's life. This is the sort of instrument that started being imported from China when they started making seriously good instruments. Unfortunately many people have yet to appreciate how good these instruments are, and are yet to move beyond their ill-informed prejudice regarding instruments made in China.

I can't remember what this one cost at the time, but it was close to $2000.

It's an excellent instrument that would suit a serious student, and is worth checking out if your looking for a good instrument.

Comes in a lightweight case as shown. Does not include a bow or sholder rest.

or sholder rest This Price: $770.

Muses 17 inch Viola

Muses 17 inch Viola Muses 17 inch Viola



This has been my viola for several years now, but I've changed my allegiance. Branded "Muses", model 905, made in 1995 in China.

I guess it helps to be around 192cm tall like myself to operate this viola, but for anyone who can reach it's a great instrument for the price. Currently set up with Pirastro Tonica strings.

Comes in an Antonio case that still works, but one side of the zip has lost the little tag to operate it, and the nylon part on the top that holds music etc has torn. I've used it for a couple of years like this.

Price: $800.

Dvorak 16 inch Viola

Dvorak 16 inch Viola Dvorak 16 inch Viola



Had this sitting around for some years, but has not been used, so it's time for a new home.

16 inch. The Label reads "Josef van Dvorak, hand crafted by Cremona, Luby u Chebu, Czechoslovakia"

There were many of these reasonable student violas brought in around the 1980's. Good student instrument. Comes in a nylon covered foam case that is still in perfect condition, with a good viola bow.

These retailed for around $2000 at the time. Price: $800.
