Asked On: 07/10/2018

Hi- I'm looking at buying this violin for my daughter who is going into 5th grade. She needs a full size. Is this a good instrument for her? Also what is the difference between the case Tc100 and Tc66? I'm new to this and don't want to spend all this money without some assistance. Thanks, Beth

SHAR Answer:

Hello Beth! This violin is the top of our Franz Hoffmann line. It would be a great option for a student moving into a full size and wanting to continue to improve their playing. Regarding the cases, the TC66 is a molded foam, light weight student case. The TC100 is very similar in construction to the TC66, but includes a plywood shell for extra protection. They are both good options for student instruments, though the extra protection offered by the TC100 is preferred by some. I hope this helps!

Hi, I am interested in either purchasing or renting a 1/2 size violin, entry level. I know for renting, we could always change to the next size when needed. What about purchasing? Do you also offer buyback or exchange? Best, Zhi Zhang
