This is a new model for Vivo, based on dimensions supplied by Linda; an exact replica of the famous 'Gore-Booth Rothschild' 1710 Stradivarius cello owned and played most recently by Swiss cellist, Rocco Filippini. 

 Hand-selected by Linda on a recent trip to L.A. European tonewoods, this resonant cello feels like butter under the hand as it is quite easy to play. The "A" string is especially smooth and possesses a very rich tone. This character is present across the entire range of the instrument, creating an even and cohesive tone. This tone allows the cello to project easily, enabling any performer to reach every end of a concert hall. This would be ideal for a serious amateur or a music major looking for a soloistic sound.

Full Size (4/4), Crafted in 2021, New

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

Price includes a pernambuco bow and a lightweight, hybrid hard case.
