Yet another Special Edition Michael Todd (wow, we LOVE doing these!) made of 50-year old wood! Fantastic power and richness, rewarding to the cellist sitting behind the instrument playing it. This instrument features vastly aged (normal is 2-10 years) maple and spruce, and varnished with a beautiful and supple antiqued oil varnish.
Todd French's Tonal Review
- Power and punch
- Fantastic lower register - great for Shostakovich cello concerto!
- Great projection, nice balanced
- Rewarding to play
Many cellists will love the depth and precision of the lower registers, that still have a slight grain to give it an edge, and the upper register is soloistic and lyrical, powerful but sensitive to the player, capable of a broad dynamic range.
Setup with ebony fittings of the highest quality, and fitted with Wittner Ultralight tailpiece and New Harmony Music carbon fiber endpin. Despiau "Two-Tree" bridge, ebony fingerboard, inlaid purfling, solid, carved throughout, aged European spruce and maple of the highest quality, antiqued varnish. Each instrument setup with the StringWorks Setup™ for optimal tone and we've found this cello absolutely SOARS with a combination of Larsen A and D and Magnacore G and C - fantastic cello, one of a kind!!
