Hi, I was recently hoping to invest in a durable custom made viola however there are quite a few options of material out there and diferent timbre's are produced to. Since I don't have quite a good enough musical ear to tell the distinct differences between the timbre material sound made. I was hoping some people could help me by describing what they here. So I here three in mind Carbon Fiber, 3D Printed, and Aluminum. And here are there sound examples

Carbon Fiber:

I looking for a list of timbres theses instruments make beside the obvious that one is more resonant than the other
I.e mahogany wood produces warm dark tones

I've tried most of these options and I am still more apt to buy and recommend a wooden viola.

Is there are particular reason that you are looking for a more durable variation?

If so, the best alternative acoustical instruments I have played are the Carbon Fiber violas.
