cellopera Posted December 4, 2022 Report Share Posted December 4, 2022 I have been trying around 12 Cellos in the past years from Vuillaume and have been very surprised with the difference in quality of sound between them. It seems like his Cellos either have a neutral, unidirectional and nasal sound, or quite impressively powerful and full of color. In my cello group in the orchestra we also have two and they are both quite different in quality, but the making is gorgeous in both. Why is this the case? I could never understand. I also noticed that they almost always benefit from a French bridge, whereas the Belgian bridge makes the usual Vuillaume lose precious core and dynamic flexibility in playing. I have a friend who prefers playing his modern Ersen Aycan instead of the Vuillaume, saying that he is tired of always not managing to modulate the sound.
