French 3/4 cello with a mature, warm sound - the best way to support talented young musicians who can make the most of the many assets of an antique children's cello.

3/4 cello by JTL crafted in the 1900's in Mirecourt, the French town rich in violin-making traditions. This 3/4-sized cello serves as an outstanding example of the acoustic assets to be found in the comparatively rare genre of children's instruments of this size. The interesting lines of the moderately grained spruce top (resin galls are filled) and the interesting flames of the two-piece maple back both reflect the thoughtful choices an experienced atelier made in selecting the tone woods, and their 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 3/4 cello's obvious virtues, and its extraordinarily beautiful sound is an outstanding choice for growing young musicians. Its resonant strength is articulated in its full volume with nuanced precision, qualifying this 3/4 cello which is preserved with arepaird center joint in good condition 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 is offered ready to play.
