Hi, I've been looking for a viola to start on as I wanted to learn a classical instrument. I found a brand called "Cecilio". Do you guys know if they're any good? If not, do you have any recommendations for a good quality starter viola? I'm on a bit of a tight budget though. The max of my price range would have to be $400.

KOHR brand violas are very good. they can take you from starting to professional levels. they can be a bit pricy though. mine was anout 400 with case, rosin, shoulder rest and 50 dolllar cleaning kit, but on sale, and when i googled the serial number it was normally 700-800. i bought it at sam ash, they generally have good sales. hope this helps

I'm learning viola (newbie) and I'm curious if anyone has ever heard of anton amara? apparently he is the manufacturer of a viola I picked up for $25 on the lable it states "Anton Amara 2004 Made for W.H. Lee Educational Strings - Chicago. Any help would be appreciated.
