About This Item

The Franz Hoffmann™ Prelude Violin: Opening New Worlds for Young Musicians.

With its superior construction and materials, the Franz Hoffmann™ Prelude violin gives students more room to grow and progress.


When a student starts out on a violin of lesser quality, it's easy for them to get discouraged early, to blame themselves for problems that are actually caused by the instrument itself. Franz Hoffmann™ Prelude violins are some of the finest beginner violins for sale online, and are even a cut above Hoffmann’s own entry-level Amadeus line. This SHAR-exclusive outfit is also packed with cool violin accessories, assembled to provide everything a violin student needs to progress on their path to musical excellence.

The Prelude violin also comes outfitted with steel core strings, which provide a brilliant tonal quality that allows the player to hear intonation with greater ease while also being more stable and easy to tune.

Professionally set up at our workshop in Beijing, then inspected, fine-tuned, and shop-adjusted at our home facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan, we at SHAR strive to ensure that each Franz Hoffmann™ Prelude violin is among the best violins for beginners for sale. Each instrument is built from high-quality materials, featuring ebony pegs and fingerboard, a hand carved bridge, a durable nitro varnish, and a composite tailpiece with four fine tuners.
