Viola #6 made in 2017, this viola is the smallest viola that I have made to date. It is named “Yose”. It is owned and played on by Alexis Sykes of New York City. Alexis is a talented violinist who also plays the viola.
“Joseph McDevitt’s Guadagnini model viola is a great instrument for modern day musicians. It is very even across the strings, clear and articulate in fast passages, a very playable size and yet still maintains a warm beautiful non-metallic tone. This combined with a price point that is in correspondence with the reality of being a professional musician in today’s world, makes his instruments an awesome opportunity to be competitive in music while also being fiscally responsible. I just won New York City Ballet Section Viola Audition on this viola and could not be happier with my investment. Try one, you won’t regret it!”
