Cecilio’s instruments are great values for the money. I have personally tested the CVA-400, CVA-600 and now this one, the CVA-500. I would buy any of their instruments and be happy but would almost recommend paying the little extra to get the CVA-500 over the CVA400. The Ebony pegs are super smooth, don’t stick or slip. The sound is warm dark and big. The action on this viola is fast.
