About This Item

Traditional European Quality and Tone for the Advancing Student

Our Hoffmann Vienna violin is a remarkable instrument that will enable the serious student to easily progress to the next level. European materials and quality abound, from the well-aged and flamed maple and spruce tonewood, the traditional hand-crafted pattern, and the delicately applied and durable oil varnish. Made in Romania, in the heart of Europe. Fitted with high-quality Overture Ultra synthetic strings, the Vienna is carefully adjusted and tested in SHAR's Ann Arbor workshop, resulting in a full, rich tone. Available in 4/4-1/2 sizes.

Asked On: 05/31/2017

The description says an oil varnish, but in the features it says a spirit varnish. So which is it? I noticed this on the Romanian violins, in every case not just the Vienna.

SHAR Answer:

Hi Roger! Sorry for the confusion, this violin has an oil varnish. Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
