Simmers Violin Makers – Studio Series cello.

Studio Series cellos, come in different levels and prices, depending on the amount of work completed in our Red Hill workshop. The latest in our line of Studio Series cellos is currently being made for us. This particular cello will be sent to us half finished. John Simmers will finalise the graduations, cut the sound-holes, fit the bass bar, then set the neck and finish off the cello externally. He will then varnish it and complete the setup. This cello is modelled after a well known by Giuseppe filius Andrea Guarneri. By outsourcing the initial stages of making the cello, we can offer a very high quality instrument at half the cost of a cello fully mady by John Simmers.

Price $22,500
