Crafted exclusively from premium European tonewoods, this viola stands as a testament to centuries of luthier tradition. The aged European spruce and maple used in the Gabrielli violas have been prized by master luthiers since the days of Stradivari for their superior acoustic properties. The meticulous control over the selection and harvest of these tonewoods, as well as their seasoning, guarantees the availability of stable, premium materials for generations to come.

The quality of the wood, flexibility of the plates, graduation refinement, and precise component placement are all optimized to create an instrument that projects beautifully, offers balanced tonality, and responds with finesse. This dedication to detail results in a superb instrument that stays true to the masterful art of luthiery and remains accessible to advancing players.
