Howard Core Dragon 16" Viola

Howard Core Dragon 16" Viola


Brand Howard Core

Built in 2017, the Howard Core Dragon Viola series is a deep, strong, resonant instrument.  Each viola's wood is aged for years before being built.  The difference can be heard, in its nuanced and awake sound.  The C string bellows, without losing its crispness.  The D and A still maintain a brilliance to their tone.  The instrument carries its sound loudly.  This viola is a wonderful entry-level instrument for the amateur violist or advancing student.  

Our musicians on staff really like the Dragon violas.  They stand out amongst other instruments in the price range.

The Dragon "Zhonglong" instruments are made by Zhonglong Sheng of the famous Sheng family, known throughout China and the world for being highly distinguished musicians and violinmakers who take great pride in their artistic craftsmanship.
