After playing viola for about a year, I'm ready for an upgrade. I'm leaning towards a Gliga from elidatrading after reading great things about them. However, I'm torn between the Gama and Gem.
I'm driven towards the Gama as I want a very good instrument and I don't want to feel like I need another upgrade after just a few years. However it seems like the Gamas need a bit of work on them, especially on the bridge after purchasing (not sure if this would be necessary for someone at my level though). Also, the Gamas are quite a bit more expensive and don't come with a case of bow.
