Set up and adjusted by Yamaha-trained professionals, the Yamaha AVA5 Student Viola is fully hand carved from seasoned wood. Perfect for beginners, its natural spruce top and two-piece maple back give the instrument a warm and resonant tone with excellent projection. Its exterior is finely finished and protected to endure beginner hands. This outfit includes all you need to get inspired for a bright, musical future!  

Hand Carved from Seasoned Wood
Featuring a solid spruce top with maple sides, back, and neck, these quality tonewoods have aged for five years or more, and have been carefully selected and hand carved to create a stunning beginner instrument.

Warm and Resonant Tone with Excellent Projection
The tonewoods allow all vibrations from the solid steel core D'Addario Prelude strings to project with ease, and produce clear, warm sounds. These durable strings last through beginner handling and remain unaltered by temperature and humidity changes so they stay in tune longer.  

Finished and Protected
To top off this instrumnet, an oil varnish is evenly applied by hand. The oil seeps into the wood past the surface layer to not only shine the viola for pleasing aesthetics, but to also protect it from damage on a molecular level. The viola is further protected by the included cloth covered case with shoulder straps.

Trusted musical instrument shop


We purchased a used one, but it was practically new to us; it was very well taken care of by professional. We are happy with the purchase.



Great deal!


I got this 15 inch Yamaha viola for my 11 year old daughter who wants to learn to play the viola so she could be in the school orchestra. (She is already quite a star in the school band). I trust the Yamaha name brand because we have a Yamaha U3 piano and it's great! My daughter has been playing the piano for a long time and I believe that she enjoys playing the piano so much because she has a beautiful instrument that makes beautiful music! I didn't want to go cheap and get something that would squeak and would be difficult to play. I didn't want her to get discouraged and give up playing because of a poor quality instrument. This viola is beautiful and it has a warm tone. It was a bit challenging learning to tune it because the pegs kept slipping, but once I got the hang of it, it was a breeze. I got a very deep discount for this viola because it was "used", but it looked brand new! I paid less than $400, while the same item was sold for around $1,000 at some other stores. What a deal! I'm so pleased with it!
