I have been playing a Colin Adamson viola since 2008 and love it as much as the day I first got it. For a smaller viola (15.5 inches), it still produces a rich, nuanced tone which is even across all four strings. Visually, the instrument is beautiful with the varnish bringing out the natural grain of the wood. I am very happy with my viola and would thoroughly recommend Colin Adamson to any instrumentalist looking for a quality instrument.
Colin’s work is influenced by the classical period of violin making and uses this experience to make copies and new instruments of this distinctive 17th century Italian Period. Many of his instruments can be found in the hands of professional players and students from around the world.
