Handmade - Superior Workmanship - Oil Finish - Professional Setup - Exceptional Beauty - Superior Sound - Ready to Play

All Gama Professional violas are HANDMADE by the best luthiers in Gliga's workshop. Each instrument is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, which confirms that the instrument meets all the design, manufacturing, finishing, and set up requirements that define the GAMA Professional level. All Gama violas are finished with a special formula of German oil-based varnish, whose elasticity factors have been perfected to allow the fibers of the wood to vibrate freely and produce extraordinary sounds, while ensuring an optimal wood protection.

The Gama Professional violas are usually chosen by advanced players, adult amateurs who play the viola as a hobby, orchestra players who find it hard to handle a full size viola, and anyone else who wants to own and play a fine viola. The Gama violas are superior to those listed under the Gems 1 level by the wood quality and aesthetic value, manufacturing process, finishing style, and accessories. All these elements are of superior quality, which have a direct influence on the quality of the sound.

A standard GAMA viola is set up with Thomastik Dominant strings and a standard tailpiece with one fine tuner. To change these settings, use the options at the top of the page. To select a case and a bow go to the top left menu and choose these items independently, or you can use these links for a 16" viola case and a 16" viola bow. All items will be shipped at once, in the same package.

The combination of woods that is used at the manufacturing of this viola is as follows:

- Solid Carpathian Resonance Spruce (Latin name: Picea Abies (L) Karst) - used for the top plate of the instrument, the bass bar, the blocks, the corner-blocks, the linings, and the sound post.

- Solid Carpathian Flamed Mountain Maple (Latin name: Acer Pseudoplatanus L.) - used for the back plate of the instrument, the neck, the scroll, the peg box, the ribs, and the bridge.

- Ebony (Latin name: Diospyros sp.) - used for the accessories: fingerboard, pegs, top nut, purfling, chinrest, tailpiece, the saddle, and the end pin.
