Truly a concert-level instrument, this cello features the most incredible piece of spruce on the top we've ever seen in the StringWorks shop, and the evenness and balance of the tone match the perfect piece of wood!
I was struck by this Heinrich Drechsler cello's build quality, then when playing it, found it to be incredibly even and pure across the strings - from C to A it seamlessly blends from one string to the next, with a purity and richness that a budding concert cellist would absolutely love. We don't normally carry instruments by other workshops (this one from the GEWA workshop), but with this instrument, we were able to hand select it and are proud to offer it in our showroom.
Harkening back to some Golden Period Stradivari instruments, the varnish is a golden color, likely chosen to show off the workmanship and wood.
Fitted with the highest quality ebony fittings including a fantastic Bois d'Harmonie style tailpiece, and setup with Larsen and Magnacore strings.
If you are truly serious about cello, majoring in cello performance or even a professional player, you need to try this instrument. Because we secured it for an incredible price, it's nearly HALF the normal retail price, and normally these Drechsler instruments are only available for retail purchase in Europe.
Feel free to contact me personally if you want more information about my trial of this fine cello - happy to help!
