Selected User Reviews For Cecilio CVA-500 Solidwood Ebony Fitted Viola with D'Addario Prelude Strings, Size 12-Inch
The viola is a great instrument for beginners! The sound quality is actually very good, as people noted on this page, and I was hesitant to buy this on Amazon, but my 4th grader has enjoyed playing this since September without any issues. In spite of being a beginner student, he has made decent progress, and I'm glad we decided to buy and not rent!.
The product works great for my daughter, who is just a beginner, but is quickly getting the hang of it. After only a few weeks she is getting the hang of it very quickly, and it sounds great.
I was very impressed with the instrument when it arrived. Well-made and beautiful, it looks like it will last for a long time. The bow came already assembled, and resining the bow (which you need to do in order to make a sound) took me no time at all. Check out the introductory video at Amazon, and don't forget to read the other paperwork that comes with the book. Tuning the instrument is explained in this article. The tuner that comes with this set is what primarily made me purchase Tears flowed from my eyes as I read this. Being an absolute beginner, I do not have the ear development that will allow me to tune on my own. It was a struggle to set the tuner up because I couldn't seem to get the right pitch. After I realized this I realized- Tuning a viola is not possible with a tuner. Guitars, violins, and cellos are used to perform this piece. A cello and viola seem identical to some people, but my understanding is that the viola is a bit higher than the cello. I knew it was impossible to tune a viola with a cello tuner, but I still wanted to use a viola tuner. There is a free app that is a viola tuner, and so I was able to tune the viola with it. There is a nice sound to it. There is only one possible problem with the viola's pegs, and that is that they are prone to slipping. There is no way to tell if it is natural for someone to have to make minor adjustments each time they play. Although I mostly adjust with the fine tuners, I sometimes use the regular tuners as well. If it drops by one or two notes, it does not present a major problem. The pegs are only mentioned because on the white paper it states that they may be a problem in some environments and peg oil is recommended.
