Snow Violas & Outfits
200 Model Violas
The company's name, Snow, originates from the workshop owner's first name XuePing, which translates into Snow. XuePing was trained in China by the great violin making master, Quan Zheng. Quan Zheng studied in Cremona, Italy, thus XuePing's instruments are of the Italian style.
Snow 200 Model Violas are handmade with a two piece maple back and solid carved spruce top. The instrument is hand-rubbed with antique varnishing.
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.
