Franz Hoffmann Concert Viola

The best in class just got better.

In partnership with Connolly Music, the Franz Hoffmann Concert lineup has been refreshed to include premium Alphayue strings from Thomastik-Infeld. Alphayue is a breakthrough string for students of all levels – the number one choice for aspiring artists! Alphayue delights with sound qualities never before available at this price point. A high-tech synthetic core married with renowned Thomastik-Infeld quality delivers a rich, sophisticated sound palette impossible to achieve with steel core strings.

This beautifully hand carved viola is finished with a quality spirit varnish to bring out the best sound from the aged tonewoods. Consistent quality, playability and visual appeal, combined with its value, make the Concert a viola that stands out. Made by our partner workshop in China, each Concert is inspected and fully adjusted in Ann Arbor. In 16.5 in - 12 in sizes.

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.

Very nice

This was my first viola, my teacher has a 14" one that I borrowed and liked so much that I got one in the size I needed. A very good starter viola for someone switching from violin. The tuning pegs leave something to be desired though.

service and product are great!

The Viola we purchased has a wonderful sound! The service we received in making this purchase surpassed all our expectations.

Inspect your Strings carefully

The strings coming with the viola are of low quality. Need to inspect them carefully within 30 days. Otherwise Sharmusic will not do anything for you. You may need to add $100 budge upfront to replace the strings.

Pleased Parent

After a week's worth of research for my daughter's replacement Viola I decided this one offered the best value in the range we could afford. I chose the instrument only so I could select a premium case and bow for her separatly. We got it within 3 days. They logically packed the instrument very well, utilizing the case I ordered to encase the instrument, bow and extra strings with the shoulder rest within the outer box. My daughter tuned it and played the same song on both her old one and this one. Unbelievable difference over her old bottom end piece. The sound was crisp and clear besides being almost three times as loud as her old one (I'll need to get her a mute next!) I am VERY pleased with this purchase as will my daughters music instructor once she hears the difference. Thank You Sharmusic

Great instrument!

My daughter is so excited to have her viola! Her teacher is really happy with the sound, so I highly recommend the concert viola for students.
