Stock # C5081 – Steffen Nowak, 2018 Bristol
Description: The original Stradivari ‘Forma B’ was the blue print for his many golden period Celli. By subtly redrawing his original outline and a body length of 740mm and a 680mm string length (as found in many old English Celli) it’s a very comfortable cello to play without compromising on performance.
The seasoned tonewoods utilized are Italian Dolomite spruce for the front, and the back and ribs well figured Bosnian maple cut on the quarter. The transparent and non antiqued oil varnish is a warm red brown colour.
Its sound is evenly balanced, responsive and powerful. Recent sound trials have impressed. You wouldn’t know that this was a slightly reduced size cello from its big sound.
Principle dimensions: Back 740 mm
