Rudoulf Doetsch Violas and Outfits

Rudoulf Doetsch Violas

Rudoulf Doetsch instruments are a favorite among teachers and students for clarity and projection of tone, as well as a particularly smooth playing response.

Doetch Violas feature carefully tuned and graduated tops and backs, fitted bass bars and the Doetsch signature antique-style spirit varnish applied by hand.

High quality ebony pegs are precisely fitted, and the fingerboard is planed for proper scoop. The popular Wittner tailpiece with four fine-tuners built-in is used.

A high quality Despiau bridge carved by our workshop is accurately fitted. We use Dominant D, G and C strings, with a Jargar A string. We finish it by adding a Guarneri style chinrest made from select Indian ebony.
