Features Heritage Advanced Professional Viola, Maggini Dumas, 16" Description Product Description All violas are sent set up. Instrument only, no case. If you require a case and/or bow, please see my other items for sale or email me: cantabilemusicshop AT gmail DOT com An interpretation of 'The Dumas' by G P Maggini, Brescia c.1600. AI050 Available sizes: 16", 16.25" As a viola maker Maggini is without equal. Contrasting the finesse of the Cremona school, the Brescian instruments of Gasparo da Salo and Maggini are considered cruder in their workmanship. Maggini, however, sought his own style. Virtuoso players demanding the forceful, but romantically dark Brescian sound seek after his instruments.
