15" Snow SA200 Model Viola
Snow SA200 Viola
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.
The Johnson String Instrument set-up includes precisely fitted high quality ebony pegs, a select ebony fingerboard planed for proper scoop, a Despiau "Superieur" bridge, the lightweight Wittner tailpiece, and Dominant D, G and C strings, with a Jargar A string. We finish it by adding a Guarneri style chinrest made from select ebony.
