Previously Owned Karl Joseph Schneider® Master Art Violin - 3/4 size

Item# TKJS3034

Shar: $2,300.00Sale: $1,417.50

In Stock

The beloved Karl Joseph Schneider® Master Art violin had been one of the most teacher-recommended violins we ever offered. And no wonder: superb tone and balance, careful German craftsmanship and a wonderful "Old German" antique varnish, all add up to a winner. Our careful shop setup and play testing assures that your new Schneider® violin will perform at its best as soon as it arrives in your home.

In a world of mass-produced merchandise that lacks "that certain something", isn't it comforting to know that there are still skilled craftsmen making violins using time-tested methods that were handed down to them by past generations? Our German-made Karl Joeseph Schneider® violins are hand-made, often in the very homes of skilled "Geigenbaumeisters". All of our Schneider® violins are made to our specifications, carefully designed for students that are moving up to an instrument capable of bringing out a broad range of musical expression.

"The Schneider® Master Art has been very popular ever since we started carrying this violin. I personally like it for its very rich, warm sound. Though a warm violin, it still has a lot of power to project in a large hall. They also come in fractional sizes, making them perfect for an advancing student."
- Aaron Prior, Violist and Shar Violin Shop Sales Supervisor

Blemished - Franz Hoffmann Prelude Cello - 1/2 size

Item# BHC12012

Shar: $799.00Sale: $629.10

In Stock

It was time - our best-selling Prelude cello has always been an outstanding value in a beginner's cello. But we were delighted when we found a workshop that raised the bar! Working closely with this workshop and our instrument partner in Beijing, we finally created the best beginner cello on the market today: The New Prelude Cello.

Hand-carved aged flamed maple and clear, straight-grained spruce, the new Prelude is as much a delight to look at as it is to play. The delicately shaded golden-brown varnish is spirit-based and hand applied, allowing the Prelude to vibrate freely and the sound to blossom. Careful attention to the ebony fingerboard allows your young student to advance quickly, without fighting poor setup. Smoothly functioning ebony pegs, perfectly-fitted bridge and post and final test playing and adjustment at our Ann Arbor workshop ensures that the Prelude will perform perfectly, with no wolf tones.

Franz Hoffmann Student Bass Size 3/4 Size

Item# BPB100 34

Shar: $979.00Sale: $881.10

Don't let the low price fool you...this fully-laminated bass is not only attractive, but plays superbly! Gamba shape is perfect for young players beginning to master the higher positions. Quality is evident throughout, from the smoothly-functioning machine-head, adjustable bridge, high-quality veneers and ebony fittings. Our skilled shop technicians adjust each bass, install new strings and send it to our test player, who makes final adjustments.

These Franz Hoffmann basses are made of fine laminates rather than solid wood. This is a more economical choice that also has the advantage of being more durable, especially in resisting cracks which can be common in larger instruments. Our customers have confirmed that these basses have amazing tonal qualities!
