ENDEAVOUR 'Alumnus' Cello

3,295.00

Endeavour 'Alumnus' cellos are meticulously hand carved in China to strict design and quality specifications of The String Workshop. They stand out from other brands of 'heavy' and 'dull' instruments which are swamping today's market.
Endeavour 'Alumnus' cellos are light-weight and produce an alive, and clear resonance which far exceeds the tone of other instruments in this price range. Made from carefully selected fine-grained and seasoned tonewoods, they are entirely hand carved, and then carefully hand varnished with a natural recipe traditional varnish before being sent to New Zealand. Once they arrive in New Zealand, they are carefully inspected for quality control. Each instrument is then personally set-up by Phil Whitehead and professionally adjusted for perfect playability, and for the most clear and balanced tone. 
New Zealand's violin teachers agree; Endeavour 'Alumnus' cellos are excellent instruments.
