Rainer Leonhardt, Mittenwald cello circa 1980

The Rainer Leonhardt atelier in Mittenwald ranks amongst the nationally and internationally renowned artisanal studios of this tradition-rich violin-making town in Bavaria; Rainer Leonhardt represents the third generation of his family to run the studio. Leonhardt's father, Wilfried Leonhardt, was trained under his own father-in-law, Anton Dietl, and took over the atelier in 1968, at which point the focus shifted to celli. Instruments of especially high quality are branded with the Leonhardts' mark, a lyre in a circle, which can be seen on this back of this cello below the button. The inside of the body is signed by the luthier. The delicately flamed two-piece maple back clearly indicates the high quality of the wood that was selected and the great care with which it was crafted. The accurately applied purfling and elegantly carved, graceful scroll are the work of an experienced hand. Our restoration experts professionally repaired minor damage to the top and the neck mortise. These areas have no effect whatsoever on the cello's solistic, carrying sound, which is warm, with depth and well-rounded. As is the case with all of our instruments, we offer this young cello after having set it up completely and made it ready to play. We recommend to contact us for an appointment to play this cello at our studio in Munich, Germany, and to compare it to other individually selected instruments from our catalog.
