I just bought my first viola this week. So far I really like it. I am not "switching" but rather expanding my capabilities so that I can play more chamber music, etc.
I have a couple of questions for violinists who have transitioned to viola:
1. Do you find that your violin setup (CR/SR) served as a starting point for your viola setup? Or did you start over from scratch?
2. Does the button of the viola rest at the same horizontal position (at your neck) as the button of the violin, or is it a little to the right or to the left of where your violin button would be?
