Recommended for Beginners trying violin to see if they like it. An affordable alternative to a V.S.O. "Violin Shaped Object" that hinders new players success and discourages them from continuing.

As any teacher will tell you, a violin for a beginning student must function flawlessly and play with ease, producing a pleasant sound. The Amadeus does just that and has gone through a three step quality inspection process before you receive it.

Visually appealing, the Amadeus is made of quality maple, spruce and ebony. The hand feel is very smooth, and the sound is enhanced by Overture Premium strings and a carbon fiber tailpiece with 4 built-in fine tuners. The bridge is accurately carved, and the pegs turn smoothly. Made in China, inspected in our Ann Arbor workshop. Available in 4/4 - 1/16 sizes.

This Franz Hoffmann violin does not come with any accessories, it is the violin only.

Poor qualit

All my students who have purchased this new have had troubles with strings staying in tune. I am not very pleased with the quality of the tone of this instrument. Paying a little more and getting the Prelude model is very worthwhile.

A decent starter

I bought this violin in a 1/2 size for my daughter. Since I wasn't sure if she would even like playing the violin, I didn't want to spend too much at first. While the Visions strings that came with this violin were way to shrill, we switched to D'Addario Prelude, which are steel, but have a much warmer tone. While this is obviously "lower" level instrument, we have had no problems with it. Her violin seldom needs much major tuning and now that she is playing in tune a little better, the sound of the violin is smooth and mellow. Now, after a year of lessons, I'm ready to upgrade her to a better instrument, but do not regret this as our starter violin.

Bang for your Buck

Even though this instrument may not be the "finest" it certainly is a good quality violin for the price. Beats any ebay or amazon factory produced violin by miles. If you can afford to splurge I recommend the prelude for sure but this is not a waist of money for a beginner violinist (especially if you do not know if the student is going to stick with the instrument).

A great beginner violin

I bought this violin outfit in 3/4 size for my child who just started playing. I like that the violin has a good quality that itíll not discourage beginners. I had a problem with the bow, but Shar took care of it immediately which I appreciate greatly. They guarantee the quality of their products, so I will shop with confidence from now. I have shopped Shar for little over 30 years (since 1999) now, and never had a single problem until lately. But they immediately took care of the problem. Thank you, Shar!
