Testore cello for sale. A very fine example of C.A. Testore’s work in excellent condition with all the exquisite tonal qualities you would expect from a healthy instrument of this pedigree. This versatile cello has a natural capacity for soloistic projection as well as the tonal flexibility to blend beautifully in a chamber or orchestral context.
The instrument has been slightly reduced in size by a skilful hand, producing an elegant model with a back length of 755mm. The head is not original.
Carlo Antonio Testore cellos are renowned for their outstanding playing qualities and this cello is no exception; the tone is pure, rich and full of colour as you will hear in the three short recordings of the cello posted below.
