myrthe Posted May 16, 2020 Report Share Posted May 16, 2020 (edited) Hi all, I hope all of you are OK in this hard period! May I ask you for some advice for a cello? I was told that they got this cello from the auction in France at about 23,000 dollars years ago. But I am not sure if this instrument is genuine, because the pattern of the wood is different from the other Bernardel cellos which I saw on the internet. So I want to ask you some advice. 1. Is this cello a genuine Bernardel? 2. If it is genuine, is Bernardel a good maker? Is it worth buying it at 10000 dollars?(They are at least two large cracks which were repaired) 3. In terms of sound quality, I think the sound of this instrument is rather wild and less soft (and the volume of sound is large); which can be a merit and a shortcoming. Is that the characteristic of this maker? (If this is a genuine one) Thank you for your favor! May all of you be safe from this horrible "Crown" virus!
