About Us


Kessler & Sons Music Features violas from Scott Cao, Eastman Strings and other makers. All of these fine manufacturers offer a perfect blend of professional hand craftsmanship and affordability.

We also feature our own private line of instruments under the names of Solist (student models) and LaChambre (intermediate models). These instruments are all hand selected by us based on their exceptional value. These models play like instruments that are much more expensive, but because we go direct and eliminate the middle men, they are at more affordable prices.

Any viola that you buy from Kessler & Sons Music is completely professionally shop adjusted prior to shipping. This way you have the peace of mind that the instrument is ready to play from the minute you receive it.

Also keep in mind that instruments purchased from Kessler & Sons Music typically have had a chance to dry out more than in most music stores. This is due to Las Vegas' dry climate. We constantly monitor our instruments to make sure that they stay in good playing shape during this process. The end result is an instrument that is more resonant and vibrant than the same instrument would have been in many local music stores.

LaChambre VA01 Student Viola | 13" - 16"

For years, we have been in search of a great performing yet low cost viola. After searching without success, we decided to just make it ourselves! Our LaChambre line of strings are made exclusively for Kessler & Sons Music and offer unparalleled perforamance value. Fully carved from natural dried spruce and maple, the VA01 produces a rich, resonant and pleasing tone unlike most student violas. Ebony fingerboard and pegs provide solid reliability even in dry climates like Las Vegas! Finally, we pair the viola with upgraded D'Addario Helicore Strings in order to give a richer, fuller tone than standard student strings. And what's best of all, it is a viola that can be had in all of the primary sizes at a truly affordable price!

Comes in foamshell arrow shaped case with Brazilwood bow and natural horsehair. 13" models equipped with D'Addario Prelude Strings - 14" and larger models equipped with D'Addario Helicore strings.
