The CRV800 Viola Outfit represents Carlo Robelli's cream of the crop, each one uniquely constructed from the finest of European spruces. Each of these instruments are meticulously crafted in China by German-trained master luthiers, right down to the very varnishes!

Apart from the spruce body, this model features a maple neck with a superior feel. Additional high-grade appointments include ebony fingerboard, pegs and fittings, Aubert bridge, fine tuner, Parisian eye on the tailpiece, and deluxe chin rest. It's strung with Thomastik strings for superb playability right out of the packaging!

Includes a Brazilwood horsehair octagonal bow and deluxe velour-lined case with built-in hygrometer and lots of storage space for accessories and two bows.

  • Hand-selected spruce body is hand-crafted by master German-trained luthiers
  • Maple neck, ebony fingerboard/pegs/fittings
  • Aubert bridge, fine tuner on E string, Parisian eye tailpiece, deluxe chinrest
  • Octagonal Brazilwood horsehair bow with leatherette grip and ebony frog
  • Deluxe velour-lined case with hygrometer and ample for storage for accessories/2 bows

Each of these unique masterpieces is played and approved by members of the Beijing Philharmonic Orchestra before shipment to ensure you are receiving an instrument of top quality and professional tone.

In 1932, Sam Ash - violinist, restorer, teacher and music store owner - saw the need for imported violins. His growing following of violin teachers and players were largely dissatisfied with the quality of the available violin brands. Sam began to cultivate violin-making relationships with small shops whose craftsmen shared his appreciation for quality workmanship. Seventy years later, his sons and grandsons have continued the same philosophy.

Today, we bring you outstanding values from Germany, Romania, the Czech Republic and China. Each is an exceptional value in its price range, and all are sold with a one-year warranty and thirty-day money-back guarantee - proof of our dedication to quality assurance.

Great violin

Comments about Carlo Robelli CRV800 Viola Outfit (Assorted Sizes):

The CRV800 is an amazing viola for under $1000. Great for any viola players that are looking to upgrade their beginner violas and wants something that will last time for quite some time. Spruce wood lends it self a very balanced tone and really allows the viola to sustain a singular note or chord for quite some time. Very comfortable.

    This is a finely crafted instrument that is built with careful attention to detail. The select spruce sourced for this instrument is beautiful and produces a full bodied tone with plenty of clarity. It is crafted with ebony appointments including the fingerboard, tailpiece, and tuning pegs to ensure high quality tone and tuning stability.

          Comments about Carlo Robelli CRV800 Viola Outfit (Assorted Sizes):

          This intrument is truly beautiful. I personally am saving up to purchase it because after playing it in store, I fell in love completely! The deep, rich sound resonates from its gorgeously crafted body.
          I personally play a student viola, a $300-400 Schroetter, and I would recommend this viola over the less expensive one IMMEDIATELY. The price is worth the quality on this instrument.
