The cello pictured here has already sold. We will get another cello in, refinish it with blonde stain and oil finish it ourselves here in Pasadena. Then we fit pegs and bridge to it, install endpin, tailpeice and strings and play it.
Videos of it being played acoustically- no amp- can be watched here:
Nice advanced student cello with looks that will turn heads! Amplify this baby and you're the star of the show. It has a big acoustic voice, but amp it up and fill any hall.
Solid carved select spruce top. Solid carved flamed maple back and sides. Rosewood pegs and Ebony fingerboard. Rosewood tailpiece with 4 fine tuners installed.
Rosewood pegs installed
Setup with a set of Jarger Strings (which sound great on many cellos), peg holes are reamed and pegs cut and fitted well so they turn smoothly and hold tightly, fingerboard dressed for smooth arched shape. $200 setup done to this cello so you get it all adjusted ready to play beautifully.
WARM MELLOW and RICH SOUND, you won't believe this superb sound coming from a cello costing this little. AND it plays well across the register with a balanced full sound.
Brand names in many stores of this quality sell for $2000 and up, get a killer price here.
Insured shipping to the lower 48 U.S. States is $95.00. We take a lot of additional care shipping your new cello so it "CAN'T" get broken in shipping. It will be double boxed with extra padding to guard against shipping damage. It will also be shipped with the sound post in the correct position instead of knocked down which saves you a trip to a local music store to reset the soundpost.
You can't ship with the soundpost in place in a carved cello unless the cello is double boxed and padded well against impacts.
3 to 4 out of 10 get broken when shipped in the single box packaging that cellos standardly ship in. We got tired of that breakage and now double box and pad well even though it costs a lot more to ship - and we have not had any break this way. Don't expect we ever will when packed this well.
The $95.00 is for the additional cost of shipping a larger box and doesn't even cover packing materials, additional labor and larger shipping box costs.
