Heinrich Gill X5 Stradavari # 629147 Cello – SOLD 4/17/2020
Features carefully selected tone woods; spruce from the Austrian Alps and maple from Bosnia and the Carpathian mountains. This wood is then stored for at least 10 years and the acoustical properties measured to choose the materials that will produce an instrument that is a joy to play and own. Skilled luthiers under the supervision of Master Luthier Bernd Dimbath take these materials and create heirloom instruments, right down to the hand varnish, that reflect the pinnacle of the craftsman’s art. In fact, Bernd carves the bass bar and the top plate personally on all his X model cellos. The sound and look of these cellos compares favorably to those costing many times more. A great instrument for the advancing player. Made in 2019.
