4/4, Crafted in 2024, New

This cello is a compelling, robust, decadent character. The higher register is focused and shimmery, the lower register fierce and vivid. It has a complex, full resonance perfect for a professional soloist. This instrument is gracefully smooth across all four strings, with a plethora of different tonal colors to investigate. It responds quickly to changes in articulation; it has a strong bite in intense, intricate sections, and mellows beautifully in lyrical, sweet passages. 

Always shop favorites, Eastman's top of the line Raul Emilianis tend to be easy to play with a smooth, rich tone. Oil varnished, they will play in slowly, reaching tonal maturity in a couple years. Sounding great, even when freshly crafted, they will only get better and better with play time. Don't wait, we rarely hang onto these for very long and only get a few each year. 

Outfit includes a lightweight, carbon hybrid case and a Arcos Brasil Silver-fitted pernambuco bow.

Buying a Cello Online from Linda West Cellos

All of our cellos (except for those on consignment or mezzo-forte instruments) come with a 14-day trial period. Once you receive your new cello, play it for 2 weeks, and if it's not "the one", contact us to discuss a return or replacement. Shipping costs back to us are the buyer's responsibility. Please see our FAQs for complete details.

Most cellos will come with a case and a bow. If you are shopping from a distance, Linda will select the most compatible bow for your cello by playing the instrument and trying out several bows. As for cases, most cellos will come with a standard hard case, which really depends on the availability. We often use Eastman CACL28 or CACL18 cases as our standard case. For more expensive instruments that are noted as coming with a lightweight hardcase, this also depends on what we have in stock, and what your chosen instrument will fit into. We usually are selecting from Gewa Air, Otto Musica, Eastman or Century Strings cases in the $1,000 - $1,400 price range. We usually give you a couple options of case and color.

We know that purchasing a cello online takes an incredible amount of trust, knowledge, and information. Therefore, we go the extra mile to make sure that you have as much information about your future cello soulmate as we can possibly provide. We would love to talk to you before you put that cello in your cart and purchase it so we can help you make sure it's going to be the right one for you. Unlike big, 'volume' shops, we are intimately familiar with each cello we have listed, and are experts at cello/player match-making. We are very passionate about making sure you receive the cello that is going to make your playing blossom, and put a smile on your face every time you play.
