Surpasses My Expectations!
Not wanting to risk my "good" violin in situations that might be less than "violin-friendly" (outdoor venues, etc.), I decided to purchase a less expensive, somewhat "rough and tumble" instrument o accompany me on my more adventurous musical outings. I purchased a traded-in Concert 3/4 outfit. This violin has blown me away!! As soon after its arrival as possible, I replaced the strings that were on it with a set of Dominants (with a Pirastro Gold-Label E). Even with the old strings, however, the potential of this violin had been evident. Between the new strings and the Liebenzeller Gold II rosin that I use, the tone that my little Concert produces is astounding! I've found, too, that it is an extremely PLAYABLE instrument -- much more so than my original violin (which sold at twice the price of the Concert trade-in). My playing became, almost immediately, more relaxed and comfortable. The only reason I didn't give the outfit a full 5 stars is that the case just didn't have many of the features I was looking for. I can, however, recommend to anyone looking for an excellent quality, better-than-the-price-would-indicate student violin that the Franz Hoffmann Concert (new or used) won't disappoint. ...
