    It is common practice to transform violins into violas as long as the student has not gained enough in body height and arm length to cope with a 'real' viola size. Just to remind us about the violin sizes:

    14" = 4/4 violin (14" is the length of the main body)

    13" = 3/4 violin

    12" = 1/2 violin

    11" = 1/4 violin

    When transformed into a viola, the lower three strings on the violin will shift, we remove the top string, and add a lower string (the C string). As the C string is significantly thicker than the other strings, it is also the most expensive string. Therefore, violins, transformed into violas, cost a little more than the original violin. The normal price of an Arco Violin is $277 (30% Discount available here) the price of a good the C String is $30. (No discount is available for this string.)

    The Arco Violin is an entry level violin handmade out of solid timbers with ebony fingerboard, chin rest and pegs. Set up and fitted with an optimised bridge and sound post in the Animato workshop. To find out more about our arco violins see here. You can also transform higher level and second-hand instruments into violas if you so wish. Please phone us or see us in store to find out more!

    1. First wonderful viola

      Posted by Vasu on 2nd Aug 2014

      I was very impressed with the professional service and care given to my first viola purchase for my 7 year old. I ordered it late sun night, mon morning received two phone calls from Dietrich clarifying my order and lots of advice re shoulder rest. It was not a call of a salesperson but a passionate musician that touched my heart. I knew I was not buying rather than gaining a friend for my child which had been carefully looked after. I got the viola on thursday very well packed in a beautiful case- was expecting a cardboard box!
      Wanted to keep it a surprise till her birthday in Nov but she is so beautiful that i had to give her to my little one who just sat speechless and hugged her many times! She has been named and the sound - it is amazing for a so called cheap instruments.
      Thank you Dietrich and animato strings for making playable affordable instruments available to all the children.
