Previously Owned Karl Joseph Schneider® Master Art Violin - 3/4 size

Item# TKJS3034

Shar: $2,249.00Sale: $1,349.40

In Stock

The beloved Karl Joseph Schneider® Master Art violin had been one of the most teacher-recommended violins we ever offered. And no wonder: superb tone and balance, careful German craftsmanship and a wonderful "Old German" antique varnish, all add up to a winner. Our careful shop setup and play testing assures that your new Schneider® violin will perform at its best as soon as it arrives in your home.

In a world of mass-produced merchandise that lacks "that certain something", isn't it comforting to know that there are still skilled craftsmen making violins using time-tested methods that were handed down to them by past generations? Our German-made Karl Joeseph Schneider® violins are hand-made, often in the very homes of skilled "Geigenbaumeisters". All of our Schneider® violins are made to our specifications, carefully designed for students that are moving up to an instrument capable of bringing out a broad range of musical expression.

"The Schneider® Master Art has been very popular ever since we started carrying this violin. I personally like it for its very rich, warm sound. Though a warm violin, it still has a lot of power to project in a large hall. They also come in fractional sizes, making them perfect for an advancing student."
- Aaron Prior, Violist and Shar Violin Shop Sales Supervisor

Blemished Franz Hoffmann® Amadeus Violin - Instrument Only - 3/4 size

Item# BUHV100 34

Shar: $104.00Sale: $97.00

In Stock

This Franz Hoffmann instrument does not come with any accessories, it is the instrument only. Most players purchase an outfit to start which includes a case, bow, and rosin, all of which are needed to begin playing.

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.

Franz Hoffmann.
You can hear the difference!


Beginnings are critical. That is why we are committed to offering the best student instruments to beginning players. We believe this commitment is why Hoffmann instruments have become so popular with teachers, schools, parents, and beginning students of all ages.

We designed Franz Hoffmann instruments to give you the absolute best student violins, violas, cellos, and basses available on the market today. The consistent quality in materials, construction, playability, tone, and visual appeal make them a great value for every beginning string student.

Working closely with workshops, we have carefully designed and crafted each Franz Hoffmann instrument to ensure our specifications are met. These instruments are then to our Ann Arbor workshop to receive final adjustments assuring easy playability and polished looks.

The Amadeus violin outfit has everything the beginning musician needs to start off on the right foot! There's no need to settle for a poorly made, hard-to-play "VSO", "violin shaped object", when you can get Franz Hoffmann quality at such a great price.
