Carlo Robelli's RVA505 violas come from a small shop where quality prevails over quantity.  What sets them apart is the amount of time and handwork that goes into carving each individual instrument. It is visible on the outside in the clean workmanship and the hand varnish. What can’t be seen is the hand grading on the inside which gives this viola exceptional tonal quality that is unmatched in comparably priced instruments. The RVA505 includes a Brazilwood horsehair octagonal bow and deluxe velour-lined case with lots of storage space for accessories and bows.

Great tone quality


The truth is that it is far to easy to get a viola with subpar sound at best. Having owned a Carlo Robelli viola in the past, I am proud to say that their quality has not dropped since I first started playing the viola. It is very hard for the pegs to get stuck or unravel themselves, a problem that some students have been having with new models of viola. This viola has been reliable and useable for a long time, enduring several string changes and bridges breaking (probably because I tend to play a little rough with faster songs). I recommend this viola for anyone interested in playing such a wonderful instrument.

Simply amazing


I am a violist and this is my first viola. I bought this viola last May and it is great. I have played violin for several years and I knew what I was looking for when I started to fancy the viola. It is handcrafted and produces a beautiful sound. After a while it starts to sound a little bit mellower. This is ok because it gives it more of a cello sound which also sounds amazing. To top it all off this is an amazing instrument. It is very well made, makes a very nice sound and is cheap in price
