I am in love with my cello!
I have been using my Karl Joseph Schneider Master Art Cello for several months now, and I could not be more happy. I decided I needed a new cello because I was tired of renting, and I was having rouble finding one locally, so I decided to give Shar's in-home trial a try, and I'm happy to say it worked out. My cello absolutely sings (when it's played properly), and it is a huge step up from the old rental instruments I was used to. Wolf tones are very few and far between, and the A string is so much more well behaved than I am used to. It is a playable, serviceable instrument, that I hope to own and play for years to come. And if I ever feel like upgrading, I can always trade it in to Shar for 100% of it's value! Awesome deal. Lastly, the aesthetics of the instrument are beautiful. It is extremely well crafted, and the finish is gorgeous. It's not a "spray tan" red-orangey finish,but a very tasteful, natural looking finish that brings out the natural grain of the wood very nicely. It does have a plastic tailpiece, which is a little disappointing, considering the price, but it doesn't affect the sound at all, it just would have been a nice touch to include a real wooden tailpiece. This is just a minor complaint that I have, it's certainly not a deal-breaker. If I ever desire a wooden tailpiece, I'm sure Shar would be able to fix me up with a nice one. Overall, I am very pleased with the quality of service and product I've received from Shar, and the Schneider Master Art Cello is an absolute beauty that I'm sure will be my musical companion for years to come. I would also like to thank Mike from the Shar Violin Shop, as he was very helpful and accommodating. Shar is the best! ... (See Full Review)
