→ John Simmers violin maker

Studio Series Viola, Andrea Guarneri model.

Studio Series instruments are made exclusively for Simmers Violin Makers from fine quality European tone wood. John visits the workshop where they are made annually to oversee their making and is always striving to improve and develop the instruments. They are very popular and we believe that there no new instruments on the market in this price range that offer the same quality of sound and craftsmanship. The violas are finished in our Red Hill workshop by John Simmers and they receive the highest level of setup, including fine quality hand turned German pegs.

This viola is made from John’s own template and measurements. The maple was milled in January 1995.
