Mittenwald/Karwendel  circa 1940 to early '50s

This cello pre-dates the era where the maker would include a Date and serial number so it can be anywhere from late 1930s to early 1950s.
This is a nice old German made cello. Some believe Ottomar Hausmann is a trade name and it may be today, but when this cello was made there were many luthiers, such as
GŁnther Reuter, who apprenticed under Ottomar Hausmann and have this recorded in their bios during the period this cello was made. This cello is from the shop of Master maker Ottomar Hausmann and I have seen these cellos sell for nearly $8000.
This cello has a rich, warm tone. It is very powerful and possesses excellent depth of tone that you can only get from an older instrument. The low registers are bottomless and the upper sings. Loads of projection.

I have re-bushed the pegbox, installed new boxwood pegs to prevent further wear replaced the endpin, and fit a new high grade, treated 'Teller' French style bridge. The cello is in a good state of repair. There are no soundpost cracks.There is a couple of repaired cracks in the top plate on the bass side. The neck projection is good and the alignment is centered. This cello belongs to a friend who needs to sell it I did the required work to make it ready to play. She is the one on the recording...she was a bit surprised at its 'post surgery' transformation. You better grab it before she changes her mind.......

Set up:

  • French style bridge
  • Swiss style boxwood pegs
  • Evah Pirazzi soloist G and C
  • Jargar medium D and A
  • Newly bushed pegbox
