A remarkable Scottish viola labeled no. 18 by Alex. Youngson, Clydebank. 16″ body length with a heavy taper to the ribs; Youngson followed Maurice Bouette’s design principles for his very successful violas. This instrument is powerful across the tonal spectrum with a huge cello-like tone. The condition is very good … not a small instrument, but a must for a professional player.
