Description: Cello - Fine Italian Cello by Luca Primon
This is a beautiful Italian Cello made by Luca Primon in his hometown Trento, Italy in 1993. Now he works and lives in Milano. Maestro Primon is a famous maker and teacher in the violinmaking world. Primon won a top prize in 1991 Triennale Competition "Antonio Stradivari" in Cremona, which is considered the pinnacle of violinmaking competitions. Maestro Primon is also a respected professor at Milan School of Violin Making (also Parma) and he teaches in the summer workshop at Oberlin College.
Because M. Primon only makes a handful of instruments a year, this cello is a rare find. The neck is grafted, and it is in excellent condition with no cracks anywhere and no damages.
AUTHENTICITY IS 100 % GUARANTEED, as M. Primon saw this instrument in summer of 2003 and wrote a certificate for it- please email me if you want to see the photos of the Primon certificate. Measurements: Back= 756mm, Upper bout= 343mm, Lower bout= 437 mm. This Primon cello is set up professionally by a great Luthier from a local violin shop and is ready to play with Larsen strings. The tone of this exquisite cello is rich, sweet, and elegance, with ample projection power. The flamed back is beautiful, striking scroll, and according to a Luthier, that he has not seen better work of purfling from a contemporary maker.
These days with the antique instruments at extraordinary prices, and the problems of upkeeping an old instrument, modern instruments are very much in demand, as they often respond better than the older instruments- especially during climate changes.
Other past winners of the Cremona Triennale Competition are asking for their celli at between USD $25,000 to $38,000 plus and they are not even half as nice as this one (believe me, I tried many of them), so this cello has a very attractive price with great quality.
This Primon cello would be a fantastic cello for a professional musician or a discerning collector.
Also I have several other instruments and bows for sale, and my references are available upon request. ALSO ANOTHER CERTIFICATE BY A WELL KNOWN LUTHIER IS AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH.
