This beautiful instrument is perfect for a professional looking for a cello that has its own voice. Its tone is reminiscent of that of an older instrument, a sought after quality in newer instruments. The A string has a variety of colors, allowing it to soar in its lower and higher positions. The D string is warm and its tone is malleable under a skilled hand. The G and C strings have a rich chocolaty texture that is a treat for listener and player alike. Complex, resonant, and responsive; this instrument is perfect for soloists looking to tell a story with their music. 

Handmade in 2001 by Jim Wimmer of Santa Barbara.  Jim was trained in Germany under the careful mentorship of master violin makers Wolfgang Uebel, whose family history of violin making can be traced back to the year 1710, and Herbert Rainer Knobel, Mr. Wimmer brings this old world tradition of classical violin construction to bear in his concert quality instruments today.

The methods and tools used in the making of bowed orchestral stringed instruments have remained largely unchanged since the sixteenth century. Great care is taken in the choice of European tonewoods, specifically milled for use by luthiers. The varnish and subtle coloring are formulated by the master and applied by brush, much like the painter's art, resulting in instruments of great sonority and classical visual beauty.

The violin maker's art has led to many collaborative projects with fine players whose music influenced Mr. Wimmer's own approach to violin playing over the years. These interactions lend an ever deeper understanding of the intricacies of this ancient art.
