A great beginning/intermediate cello

I ordered this cello after a long time of research and debating and Im not disappointed in the least. This instrument is so much more responsive than the laminate cello I was using and the tone is fantastic (this instrument is carved, by the way). The finish on this instrument is beautiful, almost a blonde wood tone with a slight tint of orange/brown and the grain of the back is very well defined. The craftsmanship of this cello is outstanding for the price point and has never failed to elicit positive comments from anyone who looks at it. To me, the tone is warm and full, especially in the lower notes and is bright but pleasant getting into the D and A strings. But in any case, Im very happy with this cello and felt it was well worth the investment. If your looking for an upgrade from your rental cello, this is definitely worth a look.

Beautiful instrument and sound

I bought this in 3/4 size as a beginner cello for my small 14 year old daughter after renting for a few months. We were surprised at the quality for the price - it has a nice deep clear sound compared to most of the beginner cellos we've heard. It has a beautiful finish - lots of brown and pretty varnishing - unlike the mass produced "orange" looking cellos. We're very happy with the choice - doesn't sound or look "beginner" at all! It came completely set up and ready to play after a quick tuning. We appreciate the counsel and advice from your staff (Nathan, Evan, and others)- never patronizing towards beginner musicians and very honest and helpful.
