Maximum acceptable length for a 4/4

Recommended Posts

I think it would probably fit a standard violin case, in any case (get it?) a viola case would be too big. 

I would say 360mm is the limit for a 4/4 violin, but that doesn’t mean something bigger isn’t playable. 

What are the body and neck stops like?

In which case it’s probably fine. Some people prefer to play on smaller instruments, others on larger.

 I made a large one, 360 not long ago, normal stop lengths. It was 115 wide in the centre bouts and had full arching. No problem playing it. 

I hope this reassures you

there are thousands of 362mm 4/4 violins.Of course they fit violin cases. I think even some long pattern Stradivari are that long.
