Karl Joseph Schneider® Master Art Violin - 1/4 size

Item# KJS3014

$2,000.00

Call 866.742.7270 for availability

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

Franz Hoffmann Koe Violin Outfit 1/4 Size

Item# SN220T 14

$379.00

As any dedicated violin teacher knows, a young beginner is in a particularly vulnerable situation: She requires a violin that is small enough to play, yet has a voice large enough to accommodate proper learning. Very often, this is the critical point at which a budding violinist will either be motivated or discouraged.

The new Franz Hoffmann Koe ("voice", in Japanese) is designed by a master teacher to help, not hinder, the small player. With its genesis in the 1/8, 1/10, and 1/16 sizes, the Koe is designed with up to 15% more internal volume than the usual fractional violins, releasing much more sound, not crushing under bow weight. Neck proportions and feel are traditional to facilitate small hand movement. Professionally set up with an Aubert bridge, a Wittner German tailpiece, and premium strings, the Franz Hoffmann Koe has a masterful fit and finish, including pegs designed to help inexperienced fingers develop tuning skills. Available in 4/4 to 1/16 sizes.

Franz Hoffmann® Amadeus Violin Outfit - 1/4 size

Item# HV100T 14

Recommended for Beginners trying violin to see if they like it. An affordable alternative to a V.S.O. "Violin Shaped Object" that hinders new players success and discourages them from continuing.

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 a carbon fiber tailpiece with 4 built-in fine tuners. The bridge is accurately carved, and the pegs turn smoothly. The outfit includes a shaped foam case, rosin and brazilwood/horsehair bow. Made in China, inspected in our Ann Arbor workshop. Available in 4/4 - 1/16 sizes.
