Gill / Dimbath X5 'Gofriller' Cello

4/4, Crafted in 2016, New

Huge sound! This cello has a soaring upper end with a bold and robust lower register. Incredible power that will project to the very last row of the concert hall, and possibly beyond. This cello plays and sounds like the much more expensive Dimbath C Class. Dimbath/Gill ’Gofriller’ X5’s have a slightly more unique look to them than their ‘Ruggieri’ or ’Stradivari’ cousins.

High performance at an incredibly affordable price! Model X5 cellos are perfect for the serious musician who desires the depth, volume, and nuance of a professional-level instrument but who's budget isn’t sky-high. Whether you are a music major, a serious amateur, or a young professional, these cellos offer amazing potential but will still allow room in your budget to find the perfect bow pairing.

These progressive X-series instruments are the result of a collaboration between Bernd Dimbath's acoustic engineering research and his Gill workshop. This new line of Gill/Dimbath has created sophisticated, professional-level cellos that are exceptionally affordable for the serious musician. This is the only Gill model to be stamped with B. Dimbath brand inside, as well as at the bottom near the endpin. The instrument-making process breaks new ground by constructing enough front and back plates for five instruments at a time and optimally pairs them using the Dimbath shop’s revolutionary acoustical engineering guidelines. This process has proven to be wildly successful, creating cellos comparable in play quality with Dimbath’s C-Class instruments but for a fraction of the cost.

Case options to be discussed at time of purchase. Does not come with a bow.

All cellos are setup or adjusted by Linda and played before shipped, guaranteed.

wonderful, wonderful cello May 5, 2017
Reviewer: Jan Hyer from Edgartown, MA United States  
I have a sibling to this cello, for "depth, volume, and nuance" you would be hard pressed to find a better instrument in this price range. Deep, and sweet, so easy to play, comfortable, will need to adjust how you sit, though, as the lower bout is very wide. The sound is so malleable and focused, you will be able to play ppp to ff with the same level and timbre for each note. It can sustain over a grand piano and a choir, yet fade away to nothingness when needed. You will need to be a little patient, as it takes a few weeks of playing in for the real meaty depth to come forward, and each day is a new discovery. Mine started opening the second week. This is a fine, fine, happy it is a stunner, too, the wood and varnish are at the top...
