We cannot over emphasize the importance of the correct set up of a Cello. The work must be carried out by an experienced Violin maker in order that the instrument fulfills both its playing and tonal potential.
We keep a comprehensive range of new Cellos as we find them to be particularly good value when compared to similarly priced older instruments.
