A ‘Tribute’ to Italian master craftsman Antonio Stradivari, a beautifully hand crafted cello made according to his design, and then hand oil-varnished in a reminiscent antique style. Endeavour 'Tribute' 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 finest European tonewood that has been naturally seasoned for a minimum of 15 years before carving. They are entirely hand carved, and then carefully hand varnished with a natural recipe traditional oil 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 music teachers agree; “Endeavour 'Tribute' cellos are excellent instruments”.
