Respected quality beginner's outfit from The Soundpost - solid wood and ebony fittings.
"Seconds" - two scratches (pictured).
Changes: Hidersine gig bag supplied instead of the usual Primavera one (the Hidersine one has more padding). Branded Schroetter bow supplied (better than the Pirmavera one)
Upgrades: Prelude strings. Professionally fitted bridge and soundpost. Just price that lot up!
Don't forget my price includes UK postage and the instrument is sent ready to play. List price is £670 (4/4 and 3/4 - perfect but with no set up work). The prices on these are increasing so fast that certain large retailers are not keeping up with the list price, hence the rather strange pricing you will find on some websites.
The Soundpost offers three levels of set up to its retailers, bronze silver and gold. This one is well above the gold set up and is of the level you would get from one of the posh shops that doesn't tell you the price until you go in.
If you are in the market for a 3/4 beginner's cello of good quality, you won't beat this one for the price.
