The maker, Wojciechowski, is very creative so his cellos are his personal variations of the models he is inspired by. He is a true artist and I know once word is out and folks discover this label, the prices will climb like Jan Szlachtowski's have..
This is built by one master Luthier, not a workshop. It is a extremely easy cello to play and very alive. If you're having to work hard and may be experiencing bow arm or hand pain this cello can help. It won't require as much bow weight and strength to get the dynamic range that some other cellos require.
This Wojeichowski cello possesses lush tonal colors and it has such a nice compact body with round high arching. The smaller pattern is easy to maneuver around when shifting into thumb position. It is very generous and allows for the most tender interludes to the most aggressive attacks. Put on your seat belt when playing this baby, 'cause she'll take you for a great ride!
This cello is excellent for solo playing, recitals and auditions.
