Price: £1250

This is the finest cello available from Stentor, hand carved from top quality tonewoods and set up in their English workshop. This cello has been mine for a few years now and was the subject of a comprehensive set up and improvement by luthier Colin Adamson of Berwick around 18 months ago. This involved re-facing the fingerboard, making and fitting a new soundpost and fitting a new ebony tailpiece with Wittner tuners. The cello was transformed and sounds outstanding. I have just fitted a new set of Spirocore strings, reset the soundpost and it plays beautifully. I am selling it with a lovely East German, pernambuco, octagonal bow freshly rehaired by Edinburgh bowmaker Allesandro Paradiso. This bow cost in excess of £300 around 2 years ago. Also included is a slightly shabby, but perfectly functional Hiscox light case. This is a genuine bargain and a great outfit. I can supply a full set of detailed photographs by e mail to interested buyers.
