Tenor Viola after da Sálo

The tenor viola is not one of the biggest ones and it is still very playable. The neck is short to modern standards and it gives a string length of 38 cm. But because of the short neck higher positions feel to be in a bit different place. Tenor violas are ideal especially for earlier repertoire, and such instruments were commonly used in 17th Century.
