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.

This Carlo Lamberti violin does not come with any accessories; it is the violin only.

Perfect intermediate violin

My son tried several violins at Shar. This was the most expensive of the 4 that he tried. He said it was the heaviest but the notes were easier to hit and sounded the best. We went from his rental to this. It was amazing how you could hear such a difference in the music (and I am not a musician). Each violin he tried sounded better than the next, with this one being the best. This was a great purchase and he should have a much better year in orchestra using a quality instrument. Looks great and sounds great

Excellent Bright Sounding Violin

Based on an assessment of this instrument's craftsmanship, playability, and tone, the Carlo Lamberti Classic Violin is absolutely optimal for use of the advancing musician.
Contrary to SHAR's statement regarding this Lamberti's sweet tone, the Classic has a pronounced, bright voice. The clarity of this violin's tone allows baroque musicians to acheive the robust style baroque is known for, while classical musicians can benefit from the brightness of this violin (especially when playing Mozart). Throughout both the lower and upper registers, there is a firm balance in its tone, which is a characteristic that I find evident in many more costly violins. A common customer concern, especially with new Chinese instruments, is a nasal quality that thwarts the violin's maximum potential. This Lamberti initially has that attribute, but has a very quick break-in time of a mere 45 minutes.
I would go on about this violin, but I made the choice of writing this review late at night. To cut to the chase, this violin has excellent playability, which is what I feel sets it apart from much of the competition in this price range.
USEFUL INFORMATION: Heard of the luthier Scott Cao? This violin is almost exactly like his STV-850s! It really is best-in-class-

Excellent Instrument

Shar really provided a gem with this one. The tonal quality of the violin is superb, better than most that I have played. My original violin was a student model and was destroyed in a flood, but this one handily takes its place. I am falling in love all over again with playing. Rob in the Violin Shop was great to deal with, and the customer service has been nothing short of exceptional. I highly recommend this company and this instrument in particular. If my son decides to take up violin lessons, I will buy this again in a smaller size.

Great Violin

I really like this violin. I used to have an awful student instrument and stepped up to this instrument. What a difference it made! It has great projection, an even tone, and sings beautifully for me. It does have a slightly nasal quality to its sound, but other than that I have absolutely fallen in love with this instrument.
