About This Item

Teachers will appreciate the lovely hand-feel, usually found only on expensive cellos. The bridge and soundpost are expertly fitted for optimum sound quality. Solid maple back and spruce top with ebony pegs, fingerboard and fittings. The ebony pegs turn smoothly. Responsive steel core strings work perfectly with the fine carbon-fiber tailpiece with four built-in string adjusters. Finished in a durable and attractive red-brown nitro varnish. Made in China, play-tested and adjusted in our Ann Arbor workshop.

Available in 4/4, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, and 1/10

This Franz Hoffmann cello does not come with any accessories, it is the cello only. Most players purchase an outfit to start which includes a case, bow, and rosin, all of which are needed to begin playing. You can find an outfit here.
