    Easily worth the price

    Shopped a number of different cellos before buying this one. I should comment that although this is a beginners cello I am not completely naive as to what makes a decent instrument being an amateur) violin player myself, my husband is an (amateur) violin player, and we already have one cello player in the family, so have some background on which to judge this instrument. I think the quality of this cello is incredible for the price. It looks in person better than the photos, plays as well as the eastman vc100 we also have which cost 3 times the price and the eastman is well broken in. I have also bought hoffman violins in the past and found them great intro instruments which lasted and improved and as most well-made instruments improve with time, the hoffman may in the end exceed the eastman in quality. Without doubt will get anyone playing on a decent instrument and will carry you through several years of playing before considering upgrading. ... (See Full Review)

    A worthy cello for any student

    I purchased this cello after searching for over 4 months for the right one. I found out about Shar googling for cellos and it was the greatest site I could have come across. This cello is erfect for my needs and my teacher was extremely impressed with the quality of the instrument and the quality of sound that it produces. This has been one of the smartest purchases I have ever made. I have called Shar asking numerous questions, being that I am a first time string player. Every time I have called I have spoken with an actual string player, not a sales rep! Not only were they helpful every time, but they were patient with me and helped me with every question. One person even helped guide me through tuning my instrument! The level of dedication and service by the staff and the quality of the instrument are enough to make me a Shar customer for life. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a student cello. Also, I was told to expect 5-10 business days for shipping when I purchased this cello. I live out of state but received my cello the very next day! Just another reason to be impressed with this awesome company and service. ... (See Full Review)
