Buying a Janos Bodor Viola

Recommended Posts

Greetings, 

I'm currently deciding on whether to purchase a Janos Bodor, 16' viola. If anyone has experience with or comments about this luthier's work, I'd appreciate you sharing it with me. 

Thank you!

Janos Bodor worked at Moennig in Philadelphia for a while before going out on his own. He’s currently making violins, violas, and cellos for the Violin House of Weaver. The violas have been made in the style of Otto Erdesz at Mr. Weaver’s request. The workmanship is quite nice and there have been plenty of positive responses from players.

A friend of mine owns one of his Brothers Amati copy cellos, built in the 80s. Just a tremendous tone, and playing on it was what inspired Lynn Harrell to sell the Strad he had just purchased from Jacqueline Du Pre's estate.
