The Lamberti Classic: Still the Champion
Developed by Charles Avsharian, SHAR CEO, our original Carlo Lamberti violin has remained a popular choice among advancing players and their teachers, for the simple reason that it has consistently outperformed other violins in its price range. Remaining the champion, though, doesn’t just happen; it is the result of constant improvements to outperform the dizzying number of violins in this price range.
Improving the already great Lamberti Classic was a project two years in the making, involving SHAR’s luthiers, teachers, top-rank orchestral violinists and one of the world’s best instrument making workshops. We did not rest until we were assured that our improved Lamberti Classic was the finest violin in the marketplace for the price, an ideal instrument for an ambitious, rapidly advancing student.
Modeled on a famous 1715 Stradivari, this violin has been made with carefully aged flamed maple back, neck and scroll and seasoned European spruce tops. Carefully applied hand varnish, following traditional Italian methods, the Lamberti Classic employs four coats of varnish, dried naturally in the sun, bringing out the full beauty of the violin, both aesthetically and tonally. Quality fittings used throughout, including Hill-style ebony pegs, a hand-carved French bridge and an ebony tailpiece with fine tuner for the E-string.
The "Best in Class!" icon is your assurance that SHAR has searched the world for instruments that are the very best value in each category. We offer a variety of instruments for different playing levels and price ranges, so that you can find the instrument that is perfect for your needs.
