Brescian Viola Model

The Bescian school is noted for wonderful sounding violas created in the 16th and 17th centuries by Maggini and Gaspar Da Salo. These distinctive viola models are available in all size ranges.


I’ve been playing a Jonathan Cooper Signature Model violin for six years now, and it continues to amaze me every time I pick it up. It’s perfect for both acoustic and amplified performances as well as studio recordings. The violin has great balance: a powerful, warm low end along with clarity and brightness, a combination that is rarely found. I highly recommend Jonathan Cooper’s instruments to anyone and everyone.
