Kallo Bartok Cello - European Excellence
We currently have an incredible Montagnana pattern Bartok, very close in personality and varnish to the Claudiu personal models! The next Stradivari Bartok should be here in late March or April. Please reserve yours soon!
Solid, hand carved European woods of the highest quality, with body being handmade in Romania and all final work and varnish done by our very own Man Claudiu in Italy! No where else can you obtain a concert-level cello made in Europe for this quality at less than $15,000, and we would challenge you to prove us wrong!
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!
