Cello (No Label) Ref:C15G (SOLD)

R55,000.00 Neg.

This is a beautiful cello I bought from small workshop in Bulgaria. It is made from selected best tonal European wood, naturally air-dried for over 10 years. The cello has a mature sound one would normally find in much older and more expensive cellos. The cello is very responsive and very easy to play. It projects very well in a big hall. All my colleges from our cello section who tried this cello describe its sound as resonant and pleasantly powerful. The cello comes with Spirocore Chrom C and G and Jarger medium A and D strings. After experimenting with many different makes of strings, I think this combination is the best for this cello.

I have been using this cello for my professional work with KZNPO since I bought it. I enjoy the deep and resonant base register as well as the powerful, yet round sound on A string. Overall, the quality of the sound of this cello is excellent! Basic soft cello bag, and a new very good carbon fiber bow are included in the price.
