The viola backs are a very important part in the transmission of the sound, together with the sides and the top they form the soundboard, which is a fundamental part to achieve the desired sound. The soundboard has an oval shape because the upper top is more curved than the back; the lower part can be made in 1 piece totally homogeneous or 2 symmetrical parts joined, which adds a little more resistance to the instrument.

Maple has been and is the preferred wood for luthiers to build the body, is a wood with optimal acoustic properties and in addition its characteristic flamed grain makes it the best choice for violin and viola luthiers.

In Maderas Barber we have different qualities of violin backs so you can choose the one that best suits your needs.
