Advanced Cellos

Artista Cello Outfit
Inspired by the Italian classics, the Artista cello is marked by its fine attention to detail and its well balanced tonal qualities. Fully hand carved and graduated from premium aged tonewoods, it combines the best features of several different masterpiece cellos in one instrument. You will not find a better playing or sounding cello for less than $5,000 (with the exception of our "The Strad" cello).  Outfit includes a braided carbon fiber bow which reproduces playing characteristics of expensive exotic wood bows, but at a lower cost and far greater durability. The lightweight polycarbonate case has 2 interior bow holders and music storage space, and wheels (of course) for EZ transport. 

It's simply the best outfit for the advanced and advancing cellist. Plus it's affordable to nearly any cellist.

 Available in 4/4 size and 7/8 for smaller players.

ChinCello Outfit


ChinCello Outfit
 A truly portable cello, the ChinCello is no larger that a 16” viola, but produces true cello tones!  It is played in “chin” position just like a violin or viola, which not only makes a strolling string quartet  a reality, it also makes it possible to play cello in venues where there is simply not enough physical space for a standard size cello.  Because of its smaller dimensions, it is also much more portable on planes, trains, and automobiles, and is particularly adaptable to alternative music venues (rock, country, etc.) by simply strapping on a pickup and plugging into the main board. 

 A “must have” for the well-rounded player.
Outfit comes complete with case and cello bow.

Complete with case, bow, shoulder rest
