Interesting circa 1760- 4/4 Violin

Body Length: 14 1/4"
Upper Bout: 6 1/2'
C-Bout: 4 1/4"
Lower Bout: 8"
String Length: 13 1/4"

Saxony or possibly Viennese? circa mid 18th century.
Ready to sing and in a good playing condition. Fairly high arching and other features consistent with the Vienna school. Looks and sounds amazing. It has such a complex sincere voice.

Inside it has an old KARL NIEDT Wurzburg 1908 repair label, as well as penciled record of past repair in Mexico for a musician named Ramon P Saleado sp? 1910.
Regardless of its mystery pedigree the tone is captivating and if you are a good musician looking for a very special old instrument this violin is worth a try. It was in a family for a long time and, sadly, was not getting played. It now is ready for its new person to come take it on its next musical adventure.

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.
