  1. Just wondering if anyone has views on the viola below/claims made? 'In the mid-1980s, I bought the viola from a Hungarian musician and gave it to the expert Mr. Herbert Moritz Mönnig, Albstadt-Ebingen, for an assessment. Mr. Mönnig confirmed the note stuck in the viola. He was of the opinion that the viola was made by Paulus Pilat, Budapest. But the paint was no longer original and was bad and Mr. Mönnig recommended that I have a new paint applied, the instrument would be worth it. From 2016 to 2017 I had a French violin maker (DMA 2, with distinction) apply a new varnish. This violin maker makes his own varnishes according to the old pattern and is known in France for being very beautiful and good. He did a virtuosic job with this viola. This viola is correspondingly beautiful I can confirm all this on oath and also in writing She has a wonderful, deep, dark, big and soft viola tone. It is equally excellent for symphony orchestra and solo playing. Body length 41.5 cm.' https://www.ebay.de/itm/382999661856?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20190917065201%26meid%3Dee5ceeae0e8747009fce1ebd1d5a0dc8%26pid%3D100935%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D125132952512%26itm%3D382999661856%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2332490%26algv%3DSimplAMLv9PairwiseUnbiasedWebCpr08MlcGreedyV3&_trksid=p2332490.c100935.m2460&amdata=cksum%3A382999661856ee5ceeae0e8747009fce1ebd1d5a0dc8|enc%3AAQAGAAABEOEFQvf1KhbQVqdCaWUvbzqFgkIUPItO8rc9Q4S4fSSaP6eS39GUCAZDjXuZsSPiVGiVfzJVbAN5ah3RtycGaUkdHZI3f0V%2BT2zQUElPyJiCbQTT8r3bhoYi0tthGJ0e%2FSsjJa0A0gv0Q6NNgRV7wOaBXe8Nav10CTysYZ7Bhb39PghpJ2xuA6TVcs6zeLjAeGxpjtJ6kNlpiyMpWOA6JsGjf3cjGf1pknBEy%2FY%2FVy%2Bjzgi2VRWtq5iRAyqAVz1pga4ZjMXytDEM6CJ89Dl8rgDAj6kcapB79xM%2BxVl%2FVLLxscIkb8ZGN%2BJtP72TDTJS%2B2sqzJfXQm89NcJsqhd4D97xr%2B4R2KRdszqLKHoBFHrp|ampid%3APL_CLK|clp%3A2332490
