The sizes of a viola are varied and although we can find more or less some standard measures, this instrument must adapt perfectly in size to obtain the musician total comfort. We can find the measures of the viola expressed in inches, centimeters or millimeters, being one inch equivalent to 2.54 cm (25.4mm).
In Xavier Vidal i Roca we have 11" size violas. They are ideal for the youngest students of the sector. When a child starts playing the viola, it is wise to use the smaller sizes, as it will be easier for him to handle small shapes. Our 11" violas are previously calibrated with high quality materials and in the best possible way to guarantee an excellent sound and ensuring the correct training of the child.
To prove the ideal measurement of the instrument the arm extension should be measured from the center of the hand to the neck. However, it is advisable that the child try different measures in order to find the ideal one, since the length of the hand and fingers are also a very important factor.
