Viola 'Kropfreiter' & bow: Kurt Werner Übel, c1954
Donated by Eckhard Kropfreiter our string adviser.
At 413mm (16½”) It is a slightly larger instrument than our other 406mm (16”) viola. Eckhard says it is probably about 50 y/o and is in the Stradivari style, but knows nothing about its provenance having been given it in p/x for some work.
It is an advanced student model.
