    Great violin

    I bought this violin outfit for my 4yr old son to start with. Our violin teacher loves it so much, she's buying one for her daughter. It sounds nice and it's beautiful quality for a cheaper nd violin. I gave it 4 stars as the bow that came with the outfit is a little on the cheap side. Right out of the box, there were hairs that were not as taught as others. I do wish it had a different E string. But overall, this is a violin for a 4yr old, it will not always be pleasing to my ear, nor will it have the best of care... lol It was a fantastic purchase and i highly recommend Shar violins. I will say that i have the Franz Hoffmann Concert violin, the stain/varnish is not as pretty to look at as the Maestro, but it is a nicer sounding violin to me and can really project as where i find the Maestro a bit quieter and not as rich in the low notes. I bought it as a starter violin and honestly, i dont know i want to part with it to upgrade... ... (See Full Review)

    I received Sophia in November of 2008. Playing the violin had been a life long dream of mine. So for my 19th birthday I decided to fulfill it. My teacher referred me to Shar. Sophia is perfect. couldn't have asked for a better violin. The only thing I changed when I got her was her E string. Don't let the price tag fool you. She was worth every penny and I'd spend it again in a heartbeat. ... (See Full Review)
