Asked On: 11/21/2016

Hi! I am trying to figure out if this comes with a case? Thanks!

SHAR Answer:

Hello Lindsey! Yes - all outfits come with a case and bow. This particular outfit comes with a standard Toshira violin case (item# TC66) and brazilwood bow (item #KVB), and also a small rosin. The case is lightweight but very protective against drops, bumps, hot and cold, and changes in humidity. It also includes backpack or shoulder straps, exterior and interior pockets, and two bow holders.

Asked On: 07/27/2016

What is the minimum that I should look for in a beginner’s violin or viola?

SHAR Answer:

When you buy a beginner's violin or viola, it's a good idea to be aware of its materials, set-up and durability. You'll want the instrument to be made from a solid spruce top and to have maple wood used for its back, neck, and sides. It ought to have real ebony fittings, for durability, and it's ideal to have pegs and fine tuners that are easy to turn and don’t slip. Most importantly, you'll want your violin or viola to meet the proper measurements/specifications and set-up, just like all of the instruments we carry here at SHAR! If the instrument has the proper specifications and set-up, then you will be equipped to succeed at learning the violin or viola. That will help minimize frustration and maximize the enjoyment of learning.
