Hi,
I'm looking for some advice on buying a five string violin or viola. I don't need anything too fancy or expensive but I would like a nice slushy lower register :) anyone got an affordable five string they can recommend to me?

Thanks :)

I am very happy with my NS Design WAV 5 electric 5 string. Acoustic 5 strings have construction compromises and resonance issues that solid body electrics don't have.
