StringWorks Maestro Cello
Improved once again, with even higher quality woods and varnish! One of the most popular cellos available today for the adult amateur and advanced cello student, the Maestro cello features some of the most beautiful figured woods and a rich oil varnish that is tastefully, lightly antiqued. Timeless!
The tone of these celli is rich, resonant and full, with wonderfully deep bass registers and a strong and vibrant upper register. Suitable for the most discriminating cellist, these instruments provide the visual beauty that is surpassed only by the rich tonal colors and depth of sound. Exclusively at StringWorks! Remember, there are many instrument brands now available with the 'Maestro' name, but there is only one StringWorks Maestro - the original and still the best!
"I'm very impressed with my Maestro cello. You're right, it really does ring; and yet the open A is not harsh. Precisely what I wanted to achieve though I didn't expect such a powerful sound and I only have perhaps 5 or six hours on it (yes my finger tips are sore as h***). 25 years ago I paid $7,500 for a Mittenwald cello, and it's very good cello but in my opinion my Maestro outshines it in every aspect. I was expecting to pay $15,000 for a suitable cello!" - B. Short

"The Maestro cello outfit arrived today and I'm very happy with it! Thank you! The cello is set up very nicely, easy to play, and for a new instrument has a lovely tone. The only comparable instrument I found to this one was made by a Judge Thomas (if I recall correctly) in 1935, and sold for $6,500. All the quality is there in the construction - even down to the purfling and the setting of the pegs." - M.M.
