It is rare that we have any instrument that is not a StringWorks model, but this viola was worth consigning, as you will clearly see. F.G. Pfretzschner instruments are extremely high quality handmade German workshop instruments that are suitable for the professional level player. You can see the incredible wood used for this viola, and the varnish looks remarkably like classic golden varnish from the Cremonese masters. 15.5" length of back.
Rich, mellow, and warm. Sweet, colorful tone with broad overtone range. Very even but particularly open on lower range. Speaks easily, good dynamic range, very forgiving to play.
