Dimbath/Gill model X7 'Ruggieri'
4/4 (full size) Crafted in 2013, Gently used
Easy to play and responsive for an advanced player who likes to dig in. Clear and bright upper register, very even tone and volume across the strings (not over-bearing on the low end). Would work well in orchestral or chamber groups, good natured sound.
The Gill/Dimbath X7 model cellos are suitable for the professional player seeking a more affordable price. They are comparable to Dimbath’s reputable E-class model cellos, possessing a similar level of depth, projection, and complexity that even the most discerning ear can appreciate.
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.
All cellos are setup or adjusted by Linda and played before shipped, guaranteed.
Comes with a standard hard case.
