At the SHAR Retail Showroom, you can browse the thousands of items found in our catalog, from sheet music to instruments. Every staff member in the SHAR Retail Showroom is an experienced string player. Whether you are a beginning or professional player, we are committed to helping you find exactly what you need!

Here are some helpful hints to keep in mind when visiting our showroom:
  • When purchasing an instrument, allow at least 30 minutes to 1 hour. Each instrument (even the same model) will have a unique sound, so allow time to try a few and compare! The showroom carries instruments up to the Otto Ernst Fischer Model 150. If you are interested in a higher model, it is best to call 866.742.7270 and make an appointment with the SHAR Violin Shop.
  • When purchasing a bow, bring your instrument. Like an instrument, each bow has unique characteristics. A bow played on your instrument may sound completely different when played on another.
  • When looking for a new shoulder rest or chinrest, bring in your instrument. You will be able to try them out on your own instrument before you purchase.
  • To determine what size instrument a child needs, first ask for a recommendation from your teacher. If you teacher doesn't specify, no problem! Just bring your child to the showroom and we can find the size that best suits the player.
  • Saturday is our busiest day of the week. If you plan on visiting us on a Saturday, allow a little extra time.

Wondering whether to buy or rent?
Here are some benefits of our rental program:
It's inexpensive! As low as $16 a month for violins and violas, $35/month for cellos and $45/month for basses. Half of your monthly rental payment is saved as Rental Credit that can be used towards buying a new instrument from SHAR. Insurance and maintenance fees are included in the rental fee so the instrument, case and bow are covered for the extent of the time you rent. Our rentals are the same student brands that we sell, so you know they're of high quality.

It's flexible! The contract is open ended so you can rent for as long or as short a time as you would like. It's also easy to switch instrument sizes any time your child needs with no extra charge or penalty.

It's easy! All you need to get a rental from SHAR is a valid credit card and the first months payment. The payments from that time on are deducted automatically from either a checking account or a credit card of your choosing.
