About This Item

Great Musicianship requires passion and commitment. A student with these qualities needs a violin that can keep up with them as their skills rapidly improve. The Maestro is up to the challenge, and is sure to make student, teacher and audience very happy!The Maestro is a favorite among Suzuki teachers and private teachers with traditional studios. The reason is simple: The Maestro is a beautifully-performing and dependable violin that possesses the hallmarks of time-tested craftsmanship. When we set out to create this violin, our goal was to keep students motivated, teachers impressed and parents delighted. Once we succeeded, we knew we could never rest, so constant improvement was a must. Today’s Maestro is the best we’ve ever offered, with improvements made in tone, playability, hand-fell and consistency. With an unusually warm, round tone, yet outstanding projection, the Franz Hoffmann Maestro stands a head taller than other student violins at this price. Made to our exacting specifications in our Chinese partner workshop, each Maestro is carefully adjusted and test played in our Ann Arbor workshop, so that your Maestro is ready to play and sure to delight for years to come. Available in 4/4 – 1/4 sizes, with limited stock of 1/10 and 1/16 available.

This Franz Hoffmann violin does not come with any accessories, it is the violin only. Most players purchase an outfit to start which includes a case, bow, and rosin, all of which are needed to begin playing.

Asked On: 03/04/2019

Hi, I'm interested in purchasing this violin and wondering if you can replace the chin rest to center mounted one. As per delivery, do you use a special package to prevent possible damage during delivery if I purchase the instrument without outfits? Thanks!

SHAR Answer:

Hello Lauren! We are not able to alter set up for these instruments before shipping. Many customers with chinrest preferences will order a chinrest with the instrument and install it when it arrives. We make sure these instruments are packaged safely with proper padding to insure the instrument's safety in transit. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
