The pochette is here!

My rosin is not though, so I can’t try him out yet. He’s lovely, and lightweight, and the carrying case also weighs next to nothing. An airplane-friendly viola! Wonderful! I need to make a luggage tag for him though, that says THIS IS A BACKPACKER FIDDLE, or else the TSA is going to think it’s a pipe bomb or something. 😛

I also got a Coda Diamond NX viola bow with him, and I’m more looking forward to giving that a run on Stevie than on the pochette. I’ve always heard about the difference that a good bow can make, and I’ve only ever used one bow, so it will be neat to feel and hear if there is a difference.

A left-handed viola-scale pochette. 🙂 Probably not too many of those in the world!
