When I was 9 years old and started to study Viola, I was too small to be able to handle a normal-sized instrument,

so my parents had a special "3/4-sized" Viola fitted for me (from a quality Violin) by Geo. Heinl & Co in Toronto
(I still have the receipt for the new parts and work done at that time).
I used that Viola when I was the youngest member of the London Youth Symphony at age 11, and until I grew big
enough to use a full-sized instrument. While I have a huge emotional attachment to the Viola for posterity, there
comes a time to let things go so others can enjoy them as well, and that time has come for my special 3/4-size Viola.
The instrument is in excellent condition, and has always been carefully used and stored. Includes 1 bow (with
resin), hard case (handle needs to be re-fastened) and outer protective cover. Easy to tune / holds its tune well.
