I tried violas in many different places. They were good instruments but none of them fully convinced me. I was looking for an instrument with a good balance between the lower and higher registry, with a sound powerful enough to fill up a big hall but at the same time with a sweet and beautiful timbre and tone. I loved Noémie’s viola since the first time I played it and every day this instrument is captivating me more and more. It is easy to play and very beautiful. I am really happy with this viola.
