Question by:

  • Olivia Baughman
  • Page, AZ

Asked On: 05/22/2018

What does this violin come with? If it doesn't come with a case, what do you ship it in? And is it good quality?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Olivia! This item is priced for the violin by itself. If you need a case and bow, we have the violin available in an outfit (case and bow included). Just click here to see the selection of sizes. If you do not want to purchase it with a bow and case, we package violins very securely when shipping them without cases, so you do not need to worry about damage in transit. Regarding the quality of the instrument, our Franz Hoffmann violins are all high quality student instruments. The Danube in particular is a Romanian instrument with a very resonant, warm tone that is a perfect starter violin or step up violin for an advancing player.
