A professional level instrument that is extremely responsive! Super easy to play for advanced players, it is overall warm and colorful, with a brighter A. The overtones are well-integrated and tight. This 7/8 has plenty of volume to compete with larger instruments, so you will not have to sacrifice volume for size.
7/8 size cellos are perfect for those of us with smaller hands, or limitations that preclude playing a full size with ease. The shorter string length makes stretches and double stops easier, and the slightly smaller body size fits smaller people better. Just less cello to wrestle with, but still with super high performance and plenty of power.
I have found that the Szlachtowski cellos, regardless of size, give the musician a lot of room to explore, sculpt and express themselves. These are cellos for the serious musician in all of us. Jan Szlachtowski has been our go-to maker for professional level 3/4 and 7/8 instruments. He is now entering retirement. This may be the last fractional Szlachtowski (new) that we ever see from him.
The varnish has nice depth and glow due to the layers of rich caramel browns over honey yellow.
Cello comes with a light-weight carbon hybrid hard case.
