How to commission a cello

H O W  T O  C O M M I S S I O N  A  C E L L O

If you decide to commission a cello, a 25% deposit of  is payable when Robin starts work on your cello; the balance is due after a two week trial period following the cello’s completion.

If for any reason you decide that you do not wish to keep the cello after the trial period, we will refund your deposit in full as soon as the instrument is sold to another cellist.

If you would like to arrange to try an existing cello by Robin, please let us know which models you are interested in and we will try to arrange for you to meet existing owners and to try their instruments.

Robin welcomes new commissions.  The current waiting list is 12 months.
