About This Item

For years, teachers and schools have trusted Franz Hoffmann instruments to help bring out the best performances in their students. Consistent quality, playability, visual appeal and value have been the hallmarks of the Franz Hoffmann line, and are only possible because of SHAR's close management of the manufacturing and setup process. Our goal with the Hoffmann Concert viola was to create an advancing level viola with a deep, appealing sound, responsive playability and great looks. Aged, flamed tonewoods, careful hand work, beautfiully-shaded spirit varnish and a relentless quest for quality all add up to the most impressive $400 viola on the market today.

Asked On: 09/05/2018

Can you describe the moderate wear on this instrument?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Jill! We do not have information on wear on a specific instrument, as there could be multiple previously owned instruments that are categorized as having moderate wear. Moderate wear could mean there are cosmetic scratches or scuffs in the varnish or on the fingerboard. Any blemishes are completely aesthetic and will not affect the instruments structural integrity or playability. I hope this helps!

Hello, does this Item# TSH500V14B come with the outfit or just instrument? Thanks, Han

SHAR Answer:

Hello Han! This item comes with the instrument only. We carry the bow and case that would typically come with the outfit separately, if you would like to purchase them as well. Our Schmidt Workshop Viola Bow is a nice quality student Brazilwood bow. Since 14 inch violas are equal in size to a 4/4 size violin, this Toshira Shaped Violin Case will fit this 14 inch viola. I hope this helps!
