About This Item

Franz Hoffmann Concert Violin

The best in class just got better.

In partnership with Connolly Music, the Franz Hoffmann Concert lineup has been refreshed to include premium Alphayue strings from Thomastik-Infeld. Alphayue is a breakthrough string for students of all levels – the number one choice for aspiring artists! Alphayue delights with sound qualities never before available at this price point. A high-tech synthetic core married with renowned Thomastik-Infeld quality delivers a rich, sophisticated sound palette impossible to achieve with steel core strings.

This beautifully hand carved violin is finished with a quality spirit varnish to bring out the best sound from the aged tonewoods. Consistent quality, playability and visual appeal, combined with its value, make the Concert a violin that stands out. Made by our partner workshop in China, each Concert is inspected and fully adjusted in Ann Arbor. In 4/4 - 1/8 sizes.

The "Best in Class!" icon is your assurance that SHAR has searched the world for instruments that are the very best value in each category. We offer a variety of instruments for different playing levels and price ranges, so that you can find the instrument that is perfect for your needs.

Asked On: 06/26/2019

What the difference between concert violin and concert deluxe violin?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Edith! The Standard Concert Violin Outfit comes with our Toshira student case and our A. Schmidt Brazilwood violin bow. The Deluxe outfit comes with our Toshira Deluxe violin case, which has a plywood shell and is a little more protective than the student version, and our Meinel Pernambuco violin bow, which is a higher quality wood than the Brazilwood bow that comes with the standard outfit. Both outfit options will come with the same violin. Let us know if you have any other questions!
