Soloist III Cello Special Edition
The 'Special Edition' Soloist III instruments are differentiated from the standard Soloist III by unique physical differences, such as higher grade maple and/or European wood. Contact us for more information on any Special Edition Soloist III cellos we have currently in stock, as they vary greatly
Designed using the requests and preferences of our customers, our new Soloist III cello possesses a tremendous tone that is even across all strings, open and rich, with a clarity seldom found in cellos under $5,000.00 A rich lower register combines with a clear and open upper register - the perfect combination for the more advanced cello repertoire.
"You know I had no doubts that you were a reputable company, but the big risk was to buy my Soloist cello sound unheard. I felt nervous because I wasn't even sure I knew what you meant when you described "bright", "dark" "open" "clean". The most astonishing thing is how you managed to get me a perfect match. Apart from your absolutely wonderful customer service - I've never experienced anything like it in all my life -your ability to match a client with a cello is uncanny. She's so much better than anything I tried out here. My teacher came and played it and she said exactly what you said about it : open, clean sound, balanced over the strings, easy to play. She also says it has lots of colors. She's says it's got a strong voice but not overwhelming THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!." - K.V.
The Soloist III is set apart by striking woods, a deep reddish-brown varnish, and an open tone with substantial resonance and evenness. Each entirely handmade and play tested to assure the highest quality tone and playability. The Soloist III cello is now made of aged, high quality Himalayan and/or European spruce and maple, and finished in our own workshops (nut, saddle, fingerboard, pegs, soundpost, endpin, final finish work, play testing, and comes with the StringWorks Setup™.) Most importantly, each and every Soloist III cello is hand-selected by the company President from the workshop, assuring only the finest examples make it to our bench for setup.
Ebony fingerboard, high quality Despiau bridge (French or Belgian available by request), Larsen A and D with Helicore G and C strings, ebony fittings (other woods available by request), composite tailpiece with built-in fine tuners, and New Harmony Music carbon fiber endpin.
