About This Item

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.

About This Brand

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.
