Shopping For Your Next Violin

  
  
  

ViolinistAs an advancing player, you outgrow your starter violin at a certain point: your skill level is inhibited by the instrument you own (or rent) and the limitations of your instrument prevent full musical expression. So where do you begin your search? Ideally, you want to try out a few violins and see how the instrument responds to your playing style. However, due to high overhead costs local violin shops might not have a superior instrument within your budget, or a wide enough range of violins for you to try out. That's where SHAR can help. We have an In-Home Trial program that's easy to use and that allows you to try out a number of our instruments in your practice room at home. But to help you even further, we've also begun a recording and video project focused on some of our best-selling violins; hopefully, with our instrument demonstrations, you can get an introduction to these violins, especially their tone and projection, and perhaps even pick out a few you want to try. Enoy, and please do call our fine instrument consultants at 866.742.7270 if you have any questions!

:) I am very happy to have a good chance for listening to some different sounds from different Violins ....

The Carlo Lamberti Master is an outstanding violin. But only the Master series. My own Lamberti has served me well in Italian competitions. We have blind tested it against historic violins from Europe and found it as good as any. Each has it's own personality, one better highs, the other lows, but put it all together had it holds its' own. It's hard to believe until you do the work, obtain violins that cost multiples of the Lamberti, then have a luther set up and try. But the Master Series is outstanding.
