Conrad Götz Jr. founded his manufacturing workshop in a small town near Markneukirchen in Saxony in 1884, initially making strings, pegs and rosin. The company prospered, and by WWII it had diversified into a wide range of musical instruments. Confiscation of the Götz property by the communist East German government after the war saw them relocate to Bubenreth, in West Germany, where this viola was made. After the reunification of Germany, their old premises near Markneukirchen were returned to them, where they now focus on bowed stringed instruments, bows, and their accessories. This small-sized viola has been fully re-set up in our workshops and fitted with Kaplan stings.
