MF VIOLA 16.5"

Online

After three years of intensive development Mezzo-Forte Streichinstrumente are proud to present the first fully carbon viola available on the worldwide market at an affordable price. The Viola, designed and produced using state-of-the-art technology, produces a quality of sound easily comparable to that of a wooden instrument whilst offering far greater presence, projection and ease of playing as well as being visually stunning.

The advantages of a Carbon Viola:
  • complete insensitivity to fluctuations in atmospheric conditions ( such as in temperature and humidity. )
  • strength and stability
  • visually stunning
  • a full and pleasant sound, very warm and rich
Details:
  • The body of the viola is hand crafted using carbon-fibre matting - made in Germany - guaranteed
  • The interior of the instrument corresponds to that of a traditional wooden instrument; only the cornices are excluded - for two reasons:
    • A conscious decision to create a modern slim design whilst maintaining (mirroring) the form of a traditional instrument.
    • The cornices of a wooden instrument serve to aid the construction, providing support and enabling the front, sides and bottom to be fixed firmly together. These cornices, which can dampen the sound, are not required when using carbon-fiber.
  • The sound post, bridge, pegs, chin-rest and tail piece all correspond to that of a traditional instrument
  • The "Design Line" instrument is fitted with an ebony fingerboard
  • The instruments are individually numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity and a 5 year guarantee

I was lucky enough to buy my MF viola used. It is finished in stunning silver and is visually an amazing piece of musical art. The tone is fantastic, both in FF and PP playing. The set up and construction are amazing, and the instrument really does feel very stable in all kinds of weather- winter and summer, with no apparent tuning issues in our dry Canadian winters. The Wittner pegs make tuning very easy and exact, and the viola is light and well proportioned for me- i especailly like the wooden fingerboard. All in all, I highly recommend MF violas, and for the price, you really can't go wrong because this instrument is not only impervious to weather and virtually indestructable, but also sounds as good as or better than a wooden viola worth three times its value.
