About This Item

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.

Question By:

From Las vegas, NV

Asked On: 09/08/2016

Hi, I was wondering if I bought a blemished violin. What is wrong with it?

SHAR Answer:

Thanks for your question Tiffany! Blemished instruments are brand new, but they are being sold at a discounted price because they exhibit some sort of slight imperfection (usually in the varnish). These blemishes are cosmetic only and will not affect the sound or playability of the instrument. The exact blemish of this instrument will vary depending on inventory availability. All trade-in and blemished instruments are covered by SHAR's 30 day no hassle return policy. Hope this helps!
