Cello after Stradivari 'B' form - smaller model (740mm) SOLD
My personal version of a smaller Straivari style cello, originally made for a client in Scotland.
This instrument has a striking Alpine hazel spruce front, the hazel markings adding a beautiful shimmer and reflection to the transparent oil varnish of golden, orange - brown colour. The back and ribs of native English sycamore (its the proper European maple - acer pseudoplatanus), and its beautiful figure also highlighted by the warm varnish colour.
The sound is very warm, evenly balanced and rich. It has recently impressed a couple of visiting professional cellists.
