Look what recent customers said about our cellos!
"Hi Tim, I love the cello. I think it's beautiful and that you have done a wonderful restoration..! I knew as soon as I picked it up and played it that it was special."
Claire Lomas, cellist
"Tim,I have now played a lot on the new cello. I like it still - a lot. The thing I think I appreciate the most is the clarity of tone and its immediate and accurate response. I think that whenever the tone I produce is unclear - it is always my fault. Not the instrument. For this reason, I find it more easy and fun to develop as a cellist and produce better music. I have increased my playing time considerably since getting this instrument. I think a good part of the reason for this is the instrument itself that inspires me to work.
Good job you did !"
Anders Finstad, cellist
"Dear Timothy, Thank you so much for helping Charis  buy one of your cellos and bows. She is absolutely delighted with them both. I think the set up suits the cello really well.  I don't normally like the effect of a Belgian bridge but this cello sounds really good. I also like the end pin, the pegs fit well, the strings are a good height from the fingerboard etc etc Thank you so much. Very best wishes" Corinne Frost, professional cellist and teacher
