Beautiful Concertante model cello hand finished by Paul Stanton
Stradivari pattern cello. "Our Concertante model" from the workshop of Paul Michael Stanton. These instruments are entirely hand made by European trained violin makers. The front is carved from high quality evenly spaced tonewood. The two piece back, ribs and scroll from highly figured selected maple. The instrument has an excellent tone and is evenly balanced over the four strings. The cello is covered with a deep chestnut antique varnish over a strong golden ground. Please note that unlike many sellers I am a professional violin maker and Newark violin school graduate and each instrument is set up to the highest of professional standards before it leaves my workshop. The ebony pegs complete with Parisian eye detail are re-seated to ensure smooth operation. The finger board is re-surfaced and an Aubert bridge is hand cut to ensure correct string heights (I normally charge £95 for this alone). In addition I lower the nut to the correct tolerences to enable extending back into the half positions as trouble free as possible. The cello comes with a "Wittner" integrated tailpiece for ease of tuning and Jarger strings to bring out the very best in the tone of the instrument. Altogether a superb looking cello that we don't think you will better for less than £5000. Suitable for players of all levels. Complete with good quality bow, styro foam hard case with music pocket and provision for two bows, rosin and carry straps.
