"I commissioned my Phillip Smith viola in 2012 and from the beginning the viola had a beautifully rich depth of sound I had been searching for. It has great projection right to the back of the concert hall with an homogenous, elegant sound across all strings and registers. My viola more than meets my expectations, I highly recommend a Phillip Smith viola and I look forward to performing this instrument for many years to come."
