I am studying violin and would like to start studying viola. I have tried a few violas in the $1K to $2K range: an old German, an Eastman 315, and another unknown. Of them, I like the Eastman the best but I'd still be embarassed to use it for ensemble play even at my rather low skill level. I may attempt to find a Century Strings C.L. Wynn v520 to compare. Yita Music's top level violin is only $1100, though, less expensive than both of these. I'd rather not buy an instrument without trying it, but others have been very happy with Yita Music. Has anyone had experience with at least two of these three? Any other suggestions? Thanks very much.
