Hidersine Vivente Viola Outfit
Hidersine Vivente Student Viola features a solid spruce top – or sound-table. This is important because your instrument’s primary voice is formed by this sound-table, and therefore the top can resonate as a single, coherent structure and sound great as a result. Plus, as the wood ages and the solid tonewood top gradually relaxes at a cellular level into its natural rest state, it will resonate even naturally, and the sound will improve further. Winner!
Your Hidersine Student Violin or Viola is supplied as an outfit, which is to say it is complete with what you need to get started. Besides the instrument itself, also included is an oblong case with internal accessory compartments and an outer music pocket. The attractive Hidersine case has a light-reflective strip on the outer cover, a zipped opening and a comfy handle too.
Most importantly, your Vivente outfit includes a Brazilwood bow, without which no sound is possible. Just tighten the hair, apply a little of the included Hidersine rosin, and the bow is ready to play… as you will be too.

Ebony – Feels great, plays great:
Vivente violins, violas, cellos and double basses all benefit from a genuine Ebony fingerboard. This prized hardwood has traditionally been used for fingerboards for hundreds of years due to its truly long-lasting properties. Unlike stained or ‘ebonized’ softwoods often used on student instruments, genuine Ebony will not mark, pit or wear out under lengthy playing periods. Rather it will remain structurally sound for a very long time, and will also feel smooth on the fingers, helping make the playing experience more pleasant all round.
An exclusive appearance.
Hidersine Vivente instruments not only have a solid top, but they also have solid Maple ribs and backs too. These solid tonewood sections further enhance the instrument’s natural tone. The top produces the instrument’s primary voice, and the back and sides add the character.
The solid Maple core is enhanced further by it’s finish. This is a special finishing technique which gives the appearance of visually top-grade maple, so your Vivente instrument has the appearance of a much more exclusive instrument.
