Viola Bass Bar

Recommended Posts

I'm making my 1st viola, small - about 15 5/8". I am shaping the bass bar now, and made the profile similar to my violins except longer. I am wondering how much taller than a violin bass bar it should be. I am thinking maybe not too much. Welcome any advice.

For a small viola a little more than 15mm, measured with a thickness caliper through the top, meaning that the thickness of the top+the height of the bass bar=15 and change mm. It could be lower of the top is stiff, but I don't go much higher.
