  • 7/8 Andreas Eastman

    Cello made in 2009 has had one previous owner, and just came back to us in excellent condition.  After a quick trip to get Pegheds and freshen things up, it will be available!  If you are moving up from a 3/4 or are perhaps 5’5″ or shorter and 4/4 cellos feel disproportionate to you, consider the 7/8 size.  This model has narrow lower bouts, so if you have short legs you’ll find this comfortable.
    Back length 715 mm
    Upper bouts  330 mm
    Lower bouts  410 mm
    String length  670 mm

  • Ariana

  • 1/2 size Stratton Special

    German 1/2 size carved cello c. 1940-1950 has been restored and set up with Pegheds, Belgian bridge, hardwood fitting with 24″ 8mm endpin.   We used to work with fractional sizes and trade them up, but this is one of the few remaining and we hope it finds a home with a school or program that routinely has small cellists as students as we no longer trade these cellos.  Outfit includes a Bobelock padded bag and a high-quality brazilwood bow stamped Jos. Martin, wt 68g
    Back length 655 mm
    Upper bouts 300 mm
    Lower bouts 370 mm

  • 3/4 size Quintus

    Quintus carbon fiber cello’s 3/4 size was made in 2000.   We are hopeful this cello will find a home with a music camp or program where 3/4 size cellists come through regularly. The material is resonant and durable and immune to the hazards of temperature and humidity changes.   The cello has a composite fingerboard that does not need planing, as well as composite pegs which don’t shrink or swell. Currently sporting an adjustable bridge, we are leaving as-is for the next owner to do as they wish.  Endpin is metal, 21″ long, removable.  Wittner alloy tailpiece. Other than some cosmetic scuffs, the cello has had no damage or repairs.

    Back length 680 mm

    Upper bout 310 mm

    Lower bouts 390 mm

    String length 640 mm.

    While it has a top plate with “purfling” of red pinstripe, the molded back & ribs are one piece with rounded edges and button, making it comfortable to play.

  • Prelude Superior

    Vivo’s Prelude Superior is a carved cello, set up here, and is currently our most affordable cello.  The parts and strings we use can vary because it’s boring to set up every cello the same.  This one has a French bridge, an Akusticus tailpiece, Pegheds geared pegs so they do not stick or slip when tuning.  10mm endpin in a NHM composite fitting provides stability if you pull the rod out really far — and there are longer lengths available.

    Back length  760 mm

    Upper bouts  343 mm
