The cello was made by a great hungarian violin maker Robert Blaszauer. Through the small mensure and bigger body it is very comfortable to play and produce good sound. Specality is that the back is in one piece and made from maple wood. This instrument helped me get prizes on international solo and string quartet competitions, but i also had orchestra tournees with it. It is hard-wearing and has an easily recognizable special sound:

13 Oct 2016 Switzerland Excellent italian cello ca.1780

This is a superb sounding cello made in central Italy ca. 1780.It plays with a very powerful, deep, sonorous sound with nice overtones and represents the typical sound of the golden era of instrument making, for which these cellos are famous for.The size is 74cm. The instrument was play tested against a Gagliano, Testore and Tononi cello and most certainly held its own and is well suited for soloist work.
