  1. Thanks! The seams are glued up and and is now set up. Very nice resonance and projection. Like you say, there are some underlying issues, but it is now playable and a decent sounding cello.
  2. According to this Tarisio article, Strad stopped making large Amati sized cellos around the early 1700s, and formalized forma B around 1707. https://tarisio.com/cozio-archive/cozio-carteggio/late-strad-cellos-part-1-bein-fruh/
  3. I think that is just the camera angle. The ribs seem very normal to me... while I'm not a luthier, I am a professional cellist, and nothing has struck me as out of the ordinary. Where specifically are you seeing a dip?
  4. Hi All! I recently was given this cello. Any thoughts on approximate age and region of origin? The dimensions seem to suggest it was modeled off the Strad forma B pattern. At some point, a sound post patch was placed inside the front plate, and several cleats for repairs for rib cracks. There are no back center joint cleats (which I thought was unusual for a cello). There is no label but there is a half inch long inventory tag with the number 0670 under the treble f hole; this reminds me of a tag I've seen Wurlitzer use. I've tried to take picture through the end piece hole to show the blocks and lining.
