thank you very much for replying to my post.
We do have a set of the EP Green strings which I bought when we got this instrument about 3 years ago, because it came with some low quality strings.
The viola has mellow tone and sounds somewhat closer to violin than to cello (that's how I'd describe it).
I bought EP Gold in hope to make the instrument brighter.
We can experiment with EP Green D - the set is currently on a spare/old viola she is not using.
The measurements are:
Length: 16.5 in
Upper bouth width: 8 in.
Lower bouth width: about 9.5 in.
I am not sure what VSL is.

I wonder if you might be helped here more by an Evah green D (probably in medium, but not sure, in your case. Depends on how much tension the viola likes). I think most would find it pretty brilliant.
