What of Viola do you play? How does it describe your personality? As stated in the last post, I play a Samuel Eastman 15.5 model and I get a really good sound out of it.

I only play the viola for 4 years by now, so I just got my first own viola which is made by Klaus Deimler, a German from the famous Möhrendorf. She is 40 cm long and has got a very sonourous (?) sound. When I chose her, she was really very very different from all the others...

Well, my viola is light, easy to play, and has a nice, loud sound. I use a 15" so that I may switch to violin easier.
