The Shar rep. played several violins for me when I bought this in Sept. 2004 and I knew this was "the one" as soon as he started playing it. My violin teacher, who plays professionally, looked it over when I brought it back home and said, "you're the first student I've ever had with a better sounding violin than mine." I switched the Dominant strings to Infield Red for a warmer sound.

I have my KJ Schneider going on now 12 years. I bought this fine instrument through Shar when I was 12 years old, and now I am 24 with the same violin and bow playing strong! Thank you Shar for making this happen.

I have to agree with the previous reviewer this violin is fantastic. The tone is perfect, it doesn't even have to open up, it sounds fantastic already. I tried the KJS Premier Artist, Kallo Bartok, and the Gliga Maestro too and came to the same conclusion, the KJS was the superior violin by a pretty wide gap. Unfortunately I had to return it because $2,400 is just too much money for me, but if you have it and can spend that much on a violin don't hesitate to try this one out, you won't be disspointed. I settled for a Gliga Maestro, but my heart belongs with this violin.

This violin is more then I could have hoped for. I tried two of them side by side through the Shar trial program. I also tried a Stringworks Karl Bartok and a Gliga Gem1 and this violin blew them all away in every respect. The quality of the antiquing and the sound quality and is just superb. I also tried several bows with this violin and decided to buy a Klaus Becker bow through Shar as well This was another great buy and I have not once regretted either purchase. If you are considering a Karl Joseph Schnider Premier artist do your self a favor and order it. You dont have anything to loose with their trial service. I just realized I sound like a commercial for Shar and this violin but it is very exciting to find an instrument that you love so much.
