Marvelous Cello By Altimira/Breton

There are no pictures available for this cello

An outstanding cello suitable for very advanced student or professional. Labeled Peter Guarnerius of Venice (copy 1925), this is a quality instrument following a personalized Stradivari model. Beautiful, silvery, focused tone of character and complex color. Truly a soloist's instrument.

Altimira was among expatriate French makers of the Barcelona School under the discipline of Etienne Marie-Breton. Probably his individual work. It is in excellent playing condition. Of note, repairs include a small chip replaced on the scroll volute, a button graft and a grain split at the heel of the neck beautifully and securely repaired with interior doweling. The top is made of fine, medium grain straight spruce. The back, of two pieces of evenly flamed maple matched by the ribs. The superbly carved artistic scroll and neck of similar flamed maple. It is covered in a transparent rose-orange varnish. The cello exhibits grace in form, characteristic of the French Breton School. A marvelous cello with resonant spruce and maple flat arching highlighted by graceful fluting of the F holes.

This is a concert quality instrument. The A string is creamy, rich...the lower strings are deep, resonant and responsive to all tonal shadings. Certificate by John Rossi, New York. QUESTIONS?
