Brazen, bold and stark, this one has a tone that reminds one black and white 'Noir' movies. There is a haunting, hollow echo to the tone that makes it particularly easy to pull desperate emotions from it. Plenty of volume, and very dynamically responsive make this a great instrument for someone interested in playing emotionally intense works, such as Elgar, or Kodály. 

The back plate of this special cello model from Eastman strings is made from Italian poplar. It has a sophisticated finish reminding us of the Eastman Emiliani line. Although the label says 'Montagnana', the pattern looks more like a Guarneri to us, but either way, it's a great looking instrument with an old school flair. 

Comes with a hard case and a bow.
