Vintage 1/4 - 1/8 size cello, unbranded, quite nice. New bridge and Prelude strings.

$388.00

A nice little cello which has a solid top at least and ebony pegs.  The purfling is inlaid in the top but painted in the bottom - don't let that put you off too much, some very good makers did this!  More important is the sound.  It has a new professionally fitted bridge (try pricing that up - it's 90 minutes skilled work) and Prelude strings have been fitted (list price £77.23).

It is smaller than most 1/4 sizes but larger than most 1/8s

There is some cosmetic damage as you would expect.  The worst is a gouge under the adjusters which is pictured.

I believe this cello to date from the 60s or 70s and to be Czech or German.
 
This listing is for the cello only but if you want to make it into an outfit I can supply bow, bag and rosin at cost.  You may prefer to get your own however.
 
I am admittedly no cellist but I did give this a play and it sounds pretty good even in my hands.  I think a good young player would make it sound very nice indeed.  But if not, well, you have the right of return and Parcelforce will even collect it from you free of charge.
 
Will you get anything that sounds better at this price? I doubt it!

The second picture shows the colour best.
