    Any opinions on those Cellos? 1: https://www.ebay.de/itm/tolles-antikes-Cello-mit-Bogen-aus-Nachlass/184474514432?hash=item2af389b400:g:W~cAAOSw7wdfec6y 2: https://www.ebay.de/itm/tolles-antikes-Meister-Cello-C-Carletti-Brandstempel-4-4-aus-Nachlass/184474482141?hash=item2af38935dd:g:OyEAAOSw0S1fecmT

    They don’t have better quality photos than this, unfortunately. Is it at least interesting looking? I am considering buying it (blindly) just from the photos.

    Does this Cello look French to you? Or rather German?
  5. Conclusion? Don’t get a better instrument, get a better violinist!
  6. This is absolutely outrageous!
  7. Are you serious? It is incredibly uncommon to pay up to $1200 for a carbon Tailpiece. There are other companies that produce quality carbon Tailpieces for less than a fifth of Ken’s price. Here is an example: https://www.concarbo.com
  8. The shop that you visited near Marienplatz is owned by Peter Benedek. He is a well respected luthier in München. https://benedek.de/?lang=en
  9. True, I thought he was asking about Auguste Sébastien Philippe Bernardel, I didn’t even take a look at the label. All clear!
  10. I have seen and tried four different Bernardels in the past two years and from that experience, this looks nothing like those instruments. He uses dark red varnish on 90% of his cellos. Go check Bernardel on the Cozio Archive https://tarisio.com/cozio-archive/browse-the-archive/makers/maker/?Maker_ID=951&filter_type=4
  11. I was not aware of that, just presumed that those sudden changes in moisture might affect the instrument more rapidly.
  12. Good to know, I’ll stop using them. I was not aware of that, just presumed that those sudden changes in moisture might affect the instrument more rapidly.
