Solid, hand carved European woods of the highest quality and expertly applied spirit varnish antiqued to replicate aged master instruments, the Kallo Bartok cello is made in our Hungarian workshop by only three master makers - truly the first cello of such tremendous quality to also be affordable. Now available in both Stradivari and Montagnana models, sizes 4/4 and 7/8 (Guadagnini)
The quality of the Kallo Bartok is so extraordinary that one was used for an entire season with Los Angeles Opera by one of the Opera cellists!!! (and later sold to a very happy StringWorks customer)
The tone of the Kallo Bartok cello is nothing short of equal to the beauty of the instrument itself. With magnificent resonance throughout the registers, a brilliant upper register and deep, rich lower register, this instrument is truly for the consummate cellist looking for an instrument that is a visual and tonal masterpiece. For the collegiate, professional, and discerning musician alike.
Listen to that resonance!
