It's what you'd expect - functional, but you probably won't be playing it in the Boston Symphony. You get a good bang for your buck. My wife got this because she used to play 40+ years ago when she was young, so she's essentially a beginner again.

When we first opened the box the viola felt like it came from a lucky packet. The quality doesn't feel great, but the sound is fine. Good for beginners.

This was the good viola for my granddaughter who just begin her study. The only drawback was that the rosin was shattered.

Nicely made, decent tone, strings and rosin are not good though. Spent $30 on a set of new strings and it made a huge improvement. Definitely a good buy!

Great for very beginner.

It does not have a full sound, and the bow is flimsy. But it is good for a very beginner who does not want to pay $800. Especially it's only $75! You get what you pay for. The case is nice.

This is my first viola and I love it. The sound is nice and warm and deep, (at least to my current ears...) I like it very much.

Delivered quickly, without damage, as advertised. I tuned it myself with a simple tuner. Sounds nice.

Excellent quality except for the strings.

My wife wanted to learn how to play the viola. It looked beautiful. She takes a couple of days to "hold" the tune. But she is satisfied with the result. I would recommend for anyone needing a starter viola!

Worth every dollar. I'm happy with it!!

Viola is lovely and stays in tune surprisingly well. I'm an adult beginner on viola and was expecting a much less quality instrument. But the finish is lovely, the sound is pleasing, and it's surprisingly easy to play with the factory strings. The case is what you'd expect on a budget instrument.

The instrument itself is well worth the price but get a better bow and maybe some better rosin.

I was playing a borrowed rental Viola and was impressed with the Viola sound. I purchased this Viola and hoped. It is a 16" Viola and designed for adult size. It has great sound. It's well made and easy to play. Definitely recommended for beginner or intermediate player.

This viola set was a great deal. It was a perfect price for my child to own a viola & no longer "rent". He enjoys playing this viola and it has a good tone.
