McDevitt Viola “Yose”

This is a McDevitt made viola that I hand built in 2017. This particular viola is the smallest that I have every made and is my own personal modified Guadagnini model. I have been gearing towards making more “new” looking instruments. As we find our way as makers you learn to develop your own style and personality that shows through in your work. I had a lot of fun making this instrument and it recently found a home with a musician from NYC. Attached are a few photos of the viola being made, I will definitely use this mold again in the near future to build another small McDevitt viola.
