Robust Student Instrument
This student cello is a sturdy and reliable instrument ideal for beginners and younger musicians. The body is made from an antique varnished, laminate Spruce top and Basswood back and sides, making it lightweight, tough and flexible. The inlaid purfling helps to protect against cracks forming at the edge of the instrument and allows the top to flex more freely.
The Ebonized Hardwood fingerboard prevents the build-up of moisture and ensures a long lasting instrument. The solid Maple bridge and metal tailpiece are hard wearing and durable fittings. Easy to use, fine tuners on the tailpiece allow for simple and quick tuning.
This cello produces a warm and even sound throughout the registers. The steel core strings create a clear and crisp tone as the beginner develops proper playing technique. Each string has silk wrappings to help students identify the notes and to create friction against the tuning pegs.
3/4 Size Cello
This student cello has been scaled down to meet the needs of the younger beginner. The 3/4 size instrument is ideal for a player whose height is roughly 5ft (152cm) or for children between 11 and 15 years old.
Includes Bow, Rosin and Case
The cello comes with everything the beginner needs to get playing straight away. The bow, made from hardwood and hair, is easy to use and robust, meaning it will withstand the stresses of students learning proper bowing techniques. A half mounted frog and Ebony adjuster make it easy to use and comfortable to hold.
The canvas covered case is easy to carry and provides reliable protection for the instrument. Wheels on the bottom mean it can be rolled around and shoulder straps mean it can be put on your back with ease. Pockets both inside and out are handy to store the included rosin and other accessories.
If you're just starting out or are simply looking for a more complete set-up, you may be interested in the 3/4 Size Cello Beginner Pack, which comes with a number of additional extras including music stand, spare strings and tuner.
