The use of Maple and Spruce tone woods is a tried and tested combination on quality cellos. Maple and Spruce provide a focused and centered, powerful sound with plenty of body and tonal warmth, whilst also making a strong and durable instrument. The woods are hand selected based on their age, seasoned and then hand carved. This results in a cello which looks beautiful and is very hard wearing, helping the player develop their own unique sound.
