Vivo Model 'Zetoni 100'
Full size (4/4), Crafted in 2019, New
This powerful top-of-the-line Zetoni projects well and would work wonderfully for solo playing or auditions. With excellent responsiveness, it speaks easily with a light bow. The C string is loud and clean, providing a lovely ring. It has a lively and bright sound with plenty of volume. Well-suited for the advanced player (with great technique) on a tight budget, or the professional looking for a gigging instrument.
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.
Cellos comes with a hard case and a bow.
All cellos are setup by Linda and played before being shipped, guaranteed.
