Pre Owned Michael Todd III Cello #304
A STUNNING Michael Todd! Traded in by a very dedicated, loving, passionate cellist who we have helped grow from Maestro, to this Micahael Todd, and finally our Bartok :) Many hours of playing for sure. Setup with Wittner FineTune pegs, as well - no tuning headaches ever!
From 2018, it has a gorgeous, timeless varnish and exquisite woods, hand selected by Todd. The tone is magnificent - complex, thick tone across the whole range. The low end is particularly deep and broad, almost limitless in breadth and potential. The tone shines across the whole register, and the upper register shines equally, blending when it wants but sparkly and ready for any soloistic passage. Perfectly setup with a new bridge and Larsen Soloist AD, Larsen G, Versum C - you MUST reserve this cello! Easily Special Edition quality for $100 off new "normal" and Free Shipping.
Our newest line of instruments is actually the re-introduction of one of our most popular lines, absent from the StringWorks lineup for many years. These cellos are made with beautifully figured, highly aged Bosnian maple and spruce, and varnished with a beautiful and supple lightly antiqued oil varnish.
The Michael Todd III is a dream, with a very sweet and tender richness to the tone. It is perfect for music of the Classical period such as Haydn and Mozart, is brilliant with Symphonic repertoire, and has great warmth and resonance throughout each register. Many cellists will love the depth of the lower registers, that still have a slight grain to give it an edge, and the upper register is soloistic and lyrical, with very fast response. Made using the finest European and Himalayan woods in our Chinese workshop, each individual Michael Todd III cello is hand-selected by our company President from the workshop, to assure only the best examples make it to our bench for setup.
"All I can say is; I'm in love! The instrument itself is absolutely beautiful and the setup is amazing. Playing this Michael Todd III.... Wow. Too easy!"
