19th century German cello from Markneukirchen

In the late 19th century, this lovely German cello was made by an unknown master in the Saxonian violin-making town of Markneukirchen. There is a label dating back to repairs made at the highly esteemed atelier of Heinrich Reinhold in Kassel, and it not only confirms the instrument's age, but also reflects how much its previous owner appreciated this instrument, which is wholly appropriate for a cello that is as aesthetically lovely as it is acoustically beautiful. The top quality of the tone woods is clearly evident in the well-chosen maple with its eye-catching flaming; the flames on the two-piece back are strikingly deep, whilst at the ribs they are more modest but interestingly asymmetrical. Subtle antiqueings on the luminous and highly transparent orange-brown varnish enhance the character of this instrument. It is in very good condition and has only a few repairs at the ribs which have no effect on the sound. Our luthiers have meticulously set up the cello and made it ready to play, and we recommend it thanks to its large, warm sound — a deep, gentle tenor voice.
