About This Item

Great Musicianship requires passion and commitment. A student with these qualities needs a violin that can keep up with them as their skills rapidly improve. The Maestro is up to the challenge, and is sure to make student, teacher and audience very happy!The Maestro is a favorite among Suzuki teachers and private teachers with traditional studios. The reason is simple: The Maestro is a beautifully-performing and dependable violin that possesses the hallmarks of time-tested craftsmanship. When we set out to create this violin, our goal was to keep students motivated, teachers impressed and parents delighted. Once we succeeded, we knew we could never rest, so constant improvement was a must. Today’s Maestro is the best we’ve ever offered, with improvements made in tone, playability, hand-fell and consistency. With an unusually warm, round tone, yet outstanding projection, the Franz Hoffmann Maestro stands a head taller than other student violins at this price. Made to our exacting specifications in our Chinese partner workshop, each Maestro is carefully adjusted and test played in our Ann Arbor workshop, so that your Maestro is ready to play and sure to delight for years to come. Available in 4/4 – 1/4 sizes, with limited stock of 1/10 and 1/16 available.

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.
