The Karl Thunemann Prelude Violas are carefully constructed to our specifications in Beijing and sent to our Algonquin workshop. Upon arrival at our workshop, they are given a professional set-up by our craftsmen. Karl Thunemann series instruments produce a higher tonal quality at a more competitive price.
The Karl Thunemann Prelude Viola includes a spruce top;flamed maple back, ribs and scroll; inlaid purfling; straight spirit varnish; ebony fittings; D'Addario Helicore strings, and a Wittner composite tailpiece with 4 built in fine tuners. Karl Thunemann instruments are dressed and tonally adjusted in our Algonquin workshop.
Please note: Varnish color and antiquing may differ from the picture above. These instruments are hand made and we allow our makers to choose the best color to bring out the true beauty of the wood and instrument. Please contact us if you would like pictures of the exact instrument we would be shipping you.
