Anyone knows about Otto Jos. Klier ?

June 3, 2013 at 02:41 PM · Hi everyone,

I have a viola which is made by Otto Jos. Klier. No.S, V16, year 1999.

However, I cannot find any information about it, such as the kind of wood, model shape, class of product line. Most of their products are named by numbers like No.12, No.72, No.80...etc, can't find No.S.

I have sent an email to OJK but no respond, wondering if anyone here can give me some answer.

Here are the pics of my viola.

Thank you very much!

I bought OJK violin model 55Z last year from Thomann store. It arrived very fast with DHL service. Yes, staff in Thomann are very helpful.

My violin has very sweet sound but not very loud.

Sound like in this youtube video.

This is the same model I bought. It is well-built and beautiful as well.

I don't know about your viola but my daughter's first instrument was an almost-binned small size Otto Jos. Klier violin, cheap and covered with scratches all over and "old" in other ways and yet it has a sweet sound!

Best wishes,

Thessa
