Student Models

It is very important when a student first begins playing the cello or any string instrument that they have a well adjusted, quality instrument in their hands. Whether a student is starting off on a smaller size instrument such as a 1/4 or 1/2" cello, the response and tone quality of the instrument should be of a high standard in order to give the student the best chance for success. All the instruments that we sell are of good quality and are set-up by our expert technicians. Please check out our pricing below.

All outfits include the instrument, case, bow and a rosin.

Advanced and Professional Models
(Bottega Nuova)

For the professional and highly advanced students, we feature the work of gold-medal-winning Chinese workshops, under our house labels.  We have visited the workshops, inspected the facilities and wood supplies, and observed the masters’ interactions with their employees.  The masters were kind enough to show us every step of their instrument and bow making processes, confirming the award-winning quality of their work.  It was particularly noteworthy that their best wood was stored in temperature and humidity controlled rooms.
