7/8, Crafted in 2021, New
Very responsive and well-balanced, this 7/8 cello makes it easy to express yourself without a lot of work.  This cello is incredibly responsive to both dynamics and vibrato, and has a very refined, yet complex sound. The tone and volume are nicely even across the strings, and the well-integrated overtones provide interest and focus without being bright or brash. Simply a joy to play, the Szlachtowski's are always a shop favorite for quality of tone, and the beauty of the finish. 

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.

The spruce grain count is ideal; it tightens towards the center line and broadens out at the flanks. 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.

All cellos are setup or adjusted by Linda, and played before shipped, guaranteed.
