A ¾-sized French cello with a soloist sound that thoroughly holds its own in performance and competitions is the best way to support talented young musicians who can make the most of the many assets of this exceptional master instrument.

This fine ¾-sized cello was crafted in the 1970s in Mirecourt, the French town rich in violin-making traditions, and it serves as an outstanding example of the aesthetic and acoustic assets to be found in the comparatively rare genre of master instruments of this size. The interesting lines of the finely to moderately grained spruce top and the deep flames of the two-piece maple back both reflect the thoughtful choices an experienced master made in selecting the tone woods, and his work is equally apparent in the exquisite craftsmanship of the purfling, the delicately drawn-out beesting corners and the cleanly carved sound holes. The magnificent golden-brown varnish is an excellent complement to this cello's obvious virtues, and its extraordinarily powerful sound is an outstanding choice for growing young musicians. Its resonant strength is articulated in its full volume with nuanced precision, qualifying this cello as the best possible partner for solo performances and competitions. And thanks to our trade-in guarantee, it will accompany young musicians as a dependable companion until they are ready to progress to an excellent full-sized cello. Like all of our instruments, this ¾-sized cello has been thoroughly set up and made ready to play by the experts at our workshop for restoration.
