  1. Hi there, I recently borrowed a friend's viola, which she isnt using anymore. It is a non-expensive Palitino viola, 15.5inches. Unfortunately, to me it sounds incredibly nasal, and overall not what Im looking for. I want to buy my own viola, but unfortunately, unlike violins, there arent that many Antique violas on Ebay for affordable prices, like I got my beloved German cottage-industry violin. Does anyone perhaps have experience with new violas, from Ebay, like the following ones? http://www.ebay.com/itm/2014-year-New-16-5-inches-viola-Ornati-style-No-4201-with-best-handcraft-viola-/321401043197?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ad4feb8fd http://www.ebay.com/itm/16-5-420mm-Mellow-Tone-Orchestra-Top-Favourite-VIOLA-plus-a-PERNAMBUCO-BOW-/181321497103?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a379a7a0f http://www.ebay.com/itm/Best-quality-16-5-viola-nice-flamed-maple-wood-back-sides-spruce-top-/360923362760?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5408b575c8 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Attractive-sound-viola-16-bird-eye-wood-BD-156-/231203986830?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35d4d4dd8e These are all pretty looking Chinese violas, which seems to already (some of them), be strung up with good strings aswell. If I buy one of these, and it sounds dreadful, I could always try regraduating the top plate, change the bass bar, or if the varnish is ultra-thick I could revarnish it myself, or whatever might be suggested. My other option is to buy a white viola on Ebay, and go from there. Since this is for myself, time and effort is no concerning matter, so I wouldnt mind having to work on it myself, and since the viola wouldnt have any antique value, I see no reason for using a better varnish (if needed, and if it comes to that). What do you think? Any suggestions? I would really like a smaller Viola, but I doubt I'll find a cheaper one that sounds great which is 15.5 inch, so I guess 16-16.5 inch is a safer bet.
