Cello after David Tecchler 1725

The model of this cello was taken from a David Tecchler 1725 played in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The original was cut-down in the upper bout, though not the lower, thus making this design easy to play yet keeping plenty of volume for a deep, sonorous lower register. This is a cello for those who love to explore every possibility of tone and timbre, with enough projection to solo, and the ability to blend into the orchestra with ease.

It is made of European maple and of spruce out of the Rocky Mountains. The varnish is a secret recipe with an alcohol and resin base. Ebony pegs and fingerboard, carbon fiber endpin with a carbide point. Dimensions are: Length of body 771mm, Upper width 359, C width 254mm and lower width 454mm.
