Cello outfit - Gliga Genial 2 Laminated
Typically sold to adult beginners or to child ‘improvers’. This is the lowest level – and described by Gliga as school instruments. All we can say is that we defy you to find anything remotely comparable in any school music cupboard!
Compare this to Zeller, Poller, Tatra by Rosetti (I don't think they are made any more but I do know what they were) - yes solid wood is better than laminate, of course, but those three brands are or were laminated and much respected. The quality of workmanship matters too.
The outfit includes Prelude strings and a Wittner tailpiece, a hard styrofoam case (these retail at about £180) and a brazilwood bow, and rosin.
