About This Item

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

Our Etude has long been a popular choice with parents and teachers willing to spend a bit more for a warmer sound. Made by hand, finished with a spirit varnish to bring out even more of the sound, and set-up with premium Overture strings. This level of craftsmanship is not found on any other student violin in this price range. A solid spruce top, inlaid purfling, solid maple sides & neck, and ebony fittings all combine to make this an excellent student instrument.

Asked On: 01/16/2018

Hello, Can you tell me more about this violin? Would it have just one previous owner? How old is it? Will there be new strings, tune up, etc.? What would be the price to get all components needed for a student (e.g., case, bow, etc.)? Thank you, Mary

SHAR Answer:

Hi Mary! Trade-in instruments have been previously owned, sometimes by multiple owners depending on available inventory. Upon their arrival back at SHAR, we make sure to inspect them carefully for damage and do any repair work necessary in order to ensure that they still meet our precise set-up specifications. Trade-in instruments show a small amount of wear and tear; oftentimes there's just a nick on the varnish to indicate their previous use. All of our used instruments are carefully evaluated and their wear has no effect on their sound and play-ability. All instrument purchases are backed by our no hassle return policy. If you are not satisfied with the instrument for any reason, you can return for a full refund within 30 days. For more information on cases, bows, and accessories, please contact us directly at 1-800-248-7427 and we would be happy to help!
