It was time - our best-selling Prelude cello has always been an outstanding value in a beginner's cello. But we were delighted when we found a workshop that raised the bar! Working closely with this workshop and our instrument partner in Beijing, we finally created the best beginner cello on the market today: The New Prelude Cello.

Hand-carved aged flamed maple and clear, straight-grained spruce, the new Prelude is as much a delight to look at as it is to play. The delicately shaded golden-brown varnish is spirit-based and hand applied, allowing the Prelude to vibrate freely and the sound to blossom. Careful attention to the ebony fingerboard allows your young student to advance quickly, without fighting poor setup. Smoothly functioning ebony pegs, perfectly-fitted bridge and post and final test playing and adjustment at our Ann Arbor workshop ensures that the Prelude will perform perfectly, with no wolf tones.

As any teacher will tell you, a violin for a beginning student must function flawlessly and play with ease, producing a pleasant sound. Our mission was to create the perfect violin that would delight beginning players, parents and teachers, while keeping to Shar's guiding principle of providing the best value to the string community. The Amadeus is just that! How did we do it? In a word- quality control! Each Amadeus goes through a three step process before you receive it.

Step 1. They are made to our specifications in one of the best workshops in China.
Step 2. They are sent to a separate workshop for inspection and the finest set- up we have seen for student instruments. Only the best instruments are selected and sent on to us in Ann Arbor.
Step 3. Final inspection and hand-adjustment by our highly trained staff in our Ann Arbor workshop.

This process ensures that each player gets a quality instrument with a quality set-up, for the best student violin value available anywhere. Visually appealing, the Amadeus is made of quality maple, spruce and ebony. The hand feel is very smooth, and the sound is enhanced by Overture premium strings and Carbon Fiber tailpiece. The bridge is accurately carved, and the pegs turn smoothly.Available in 4/4 - 1/16 sizes.
