Full, crisp sound. Huge C-string. Nice resonance and sustain. Loud and soaring across the register. Highest performance you would only expect from a cello costing much more. European maple back (french) and Italian Spruce top. The Vivo USA line continues to provide some of our best selling cellos. Hand-crafted in Beijing, China, even the lowest priced models are all solid carved with inlaid purling and ebony accessories (unless noted). We have found that the Vivos always play well beyond their price point. Often earning my ‘Easy’ badge, even the higher priced cellos, such as the Zetoni 200 and 100 line, are frequently easy enough for even beginners to play. This makes the Vivos a perfect investment for beginners who don’t want to outgrow their first instrument, or for more advanced students on a tight budget.
Based in Southern California, Vivos are made in workshops selected by the owner of Vivo, who is a cellist. One of his favorite workshops has a 40-year veteran craftsman who specializes only in cellos. The owner personally hand-selects many of the higher end models, such as the Limited edition cellos. The 1717 Rugeri and 1777 Guadagnini models are a special project for Linda West Cellos hand-crafted following all the dimensions and design nuances of the original.Cello comes with a standard hard case and your choice of bow.
All cellos are setup or adjusted by Linda and played before shipped, guaranteed.
