I am new to violin (in fact, playing any musical instrument period is all new to me!) I suppose the simple beauty of the sound and ignorance of it's difficulty lured me to start looking around t some options. I found the Shar website when I was doing a Google search on good beginner/student violin options. I looked thru the site and found they even had a clearance section. Now we're talkin! I purchased the Franz Hoffman Etude (blemished) on Monday (11 am) and it arrived at my home on Wednesday (10 am) Totally pleased with the service and process. The violin is in perfect condition to my eyes and I'm sure will sound beautiful in the not too distant future - after I have lots more practice! haha I would totally recommend their products and I couldn't be happier! Thanks so much Shar!! R.A. ... (See Full Review)

Great for the price!!
My current violin was a big mistake. It was cheaply made, the pegs would never stay, and the quality of the strings were just terrible. A violin seller said that getting a good violin would e around 300 dollars and up! The violin that I had been using for a week as we looked for a new violin was very nice, and we researched the brand and it was Franz Hoffman etude violin. We found the violin on this site sharmusic.com and gave it a try. The violin was ordered Tuesday night and it came Friday morning!! The violin is great!!! The case is beautiful the pegs stay and the violin bridge is wonderful too! The quality of the strings are very nice too. I guess a good violin was 300 dollars. Not an amazing one!!! ...
