English cello by Kenneth Grimley

With its radiant, open and wonderfully adaptable sound, this young English cello is ideal for professional performance. The original label and a signature in the inside of the body confirm its provenance: it is a 1994 instrument from the atelier of Kenneth Grimley in Southport-Ainsdale. The expressively carved scroll further highlights the English character of this cello, which has a distinctive aesthetic with its moderately high and sweeping arch and its obliquely angled sound holes. The glossy deep-red spirit varnish coats outstanding tone woods whose quality is immediately apparent with a glance at the interesting flaming of the two-piece maple back. We received the instrument in prime condition, and our luthiers worked it over thoroughly and have made it ready to play. This cello is an excellent partner to demanding musicians, a flexible instrument with a rapid response and a bright voice full of overtones.
