West Coast Strings' Vitto Rossi viola is made in a traditional family workshop that has dedicated three generations to the pursuit of perfectly combining music with instrument making techniques. This instrument is hand crafted with the best available tonewood that has been aged for over ten years. The Vitto Rossi features a highly flamed maple back, ribs and scroll and select spruce top. It has been antiqued with a beautiful golden brown varnish, and set up with boxwood fittings and Pirastro Chromcor strings. The tone is well balanced, round and powerful.
