The Roma Series is our first European/Romanian line that follows Romania’s age-old violin-making traditions, both in materials and workmanship. It is the ideal instrument for the student changing from a smaller-size instrument to a full-size viola.
We begin by constructing our Roma tops with authentic European spruce from the Carpathian Mountains for unmatched tone then add hand-selected maple back and sides for strength. The fingerboard and pegs are all-ebony construction. To that, we include an upgraded French bridge and a top-quality Glasser tailpiece with four fine tuners.
We match the Roma viola with tonally superior Piranito strings — Europe’s #1 educational string. They feature a single filament steel core wound with chrome steel, resulting in a bright sound and easy response without any metallic harshness.
For the player who wants more exotic features and superior tone than most student violas offer, the Roma is the perfect instrument.
