Heart’s Ease is a 14and1/4" da Salo style viola created for a violist in London who has left arm difficulties. Its tone is as meaty as any full size viola but the feel is that of a violin. The string length is 13and1/8" and the width of the neck at the nut is violin sized at 23mm. This instrument would also be ideal for violinists doubling on viola.
