The definition of an Overture is something that serves as a “preceding event” or something that “introduces what follows” … and that is the ideal description of the Bellafina Overture viola.
Designed as the perfect instrument for students graduating from a smaller size, the Overture violas are larger and higher quality, created from premium solid spruce and maple. Not only a better sounding instrument, the Overtures also feature a beautiful flamed maple back that you can only get with select quality wood.
The Overture violas come with Helicore strings from D’Addario for optimal playability and clear, warm tone — perfect for the player whose skills have outgrown their basic student viola.
Matched with an aged maple bridge, traditional antique finish, all Ebony fingerboard and pegs, plus an octagonal bow for a superior grip, the Overture viola allows the growing student to progress to higher level of playing satisfaction.
