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.

Franz Hoffmann Koe Violin Outfit 3/4 Size

Item# SN220T 34

$400.00

In Stock

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.
