About This Item

For years, teachers and schools have trusted Franz Hoffmann instruments to help bring out the best performances in their students. Consistent quality, playability, visual appeal and value have been the hallmarks of the Franz Hoffmann line, and are only possible because of SHAR's close management of the manufacturing and setup process. Our goal with the Hoffmann Concert viola was to create an advancing level viola with a deep, appealing sound, responsive playability and great looks. Aged, flamed tonewoods, careful hand work, beautfiully-shaded spirit varnish and a relentless quest for quality all add up to the most impressive $400 viola on the market today.

  • Sac-to, CA

Asked On: 10/29/2018

What kind of wear does this viola have? Also does it come with a case, bow, etc?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Victoria! We do not have the specific blemish available for this instrument, but generally, a blemished instrument is a brand new instrument that arrived in our shop with some sort of aesthetic scratch or scuff. The blemish will not affect the playability, structurally integrity, or sound of the instrument. It is priced for the instrument by itself and will not include a case or bow. Typically, we pair this instrument with our Schmidt Workshop viola bow and our Toshira shaped case. (A 13 inch viola is the same size as a 3/4 violin, so you would want to select the 3/4 size case I've linked). Please let us know if you have any other questions!
