Complete new set of strings ready for the concerto on Saturday.
Viola Pirastro Passione

The viola also needed some significant work done to service it back up to tip top condition. Thwaites in Bushey did their usual fantastic job and resealed the seams, reset the bridge and cleaned the front. It sounds beautiful again!



The viola was taken to Thwaites in Bushey for a bit of care and attention, once there we found that the seams had come apart. These were glued back together and the instrument cleaned, the bridge was reset and they also fitted a new D-String (Passione) as it was very very ill!

I then fitted a complete new set of strings C, G & A (Pirastro Passione)

This is all in preparation for the Mozart Symphonia Concertante on Saturday
