Question By:
Hang Tu
From Cypress, TX

Asked On: 08/18/2016

Hi, I don't know much about cello, i have a budget of $1000, will this cello come with the bow, and in case? Also, is the front and back board of the cello made out of 1 piece of wood each? How can i play and hear this instrument before buying it?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Hang! This item is an "outfit" which means it includes a bow and case (as well as rosin). This model is our most affordable option that offers a solid front and back - carved solid spruce and maple respectively. You can hear a very similar Franz Hoffmann instrument on our YouTube channel. Thanks for your question!
