16” JOHANNES KÖHR K550 VIOLA – ONE-PIECE BACK – Slightly Used –
click picture to enlarge
Johannes Köhr instruments are a very nice step-up instrument. Crafted with a high degree of quality tonewoods and hand-graduated to produce more resonant acoustic properties. The K550V model is well suited for players who desire an open sound with a big projection, medium-voice, and rich tone throughout. Our viola was made in 1998 and features an over the top highly flamed one-piece maple back with matching ribs. The spirit varnish is a medium orange/brown on a golden ground.
The instrument also has a German Wittner tailpiece and a Wittner chinrest. We have added a new set of D’Addario Helicore strings to the viola. The instrument does contain some wear marks on the top plate and a slight mark on the back plate, not highly visible. We have carved a Despiau bridge and sound post for the instrument and it is ready to go.
This viola would make a great instrument for a high school, college or university looking for an instrument to add to their program. We have priced this instrument to sell quickly.
