Svencino Custom quarter Cello – preLoved

‹Return to Previous Page


Two sisters, – names changed – many celli, bows, cases and rosins needed to grow them from quarter to full.
Milla’s arms having grown into a new handsome three quarter cello and bow to match, sister Alayna in toe, takes over the half size in between; it all works out.

This leaves us with a fantastic pre loved instrument that proves its worth with the next keenly tuned child with passionate talent.
The build is custom with a slight bow of the back plate on a shaped rib set. For enhanced projection and sound. A conceptual cut that springs tiny-tot-celli to musical life.

Finely flamed maple back, sides and scroll. Seasoned spruce top and all natural honey toned Tung nut oil varnish to seal all in.
Custom hand made and fitted purple heart wood pegs & fingerboard.
Delightful condition with few small tell-tale signs of life on stage and class’room.

Setup in Svencino studios with a Despiau French Maple bridge and Svencino harmonic tailpiece. Your choice of strings – otherwise a studio set included – and a carbon fibre end-pin.
The accompanying bow is a reworked ‘better’ student range model; re-haired, serviced, lapped afresh and balanced with tweaks to the bending.
Enclosed in a fun red – serviced  – fibre glass cases on wheels, with fresh stickers to make scratches something exciting for the young instead of visual scruffiness.

May its harmonic story continue. Sv.

  1. tilla henkins

    The Svencino custom built cello that is for sale was played on by a pupil of mine until she grew out of it. I can say without a doubt that this is the best sounding, best looking half sized cello I have ever come across. Learning to play on an instrument that is easy to play on, easy on the ear, easy on the eye WITH its own taylor size hard case, it is undoubtedly the best value for money and most importantly for the teacher, helps the pupil to progress optimally.

  2. Philo Nel

    My daughters both started their cello playing on this wonderful instrument. It has an amazing full bodied sound far beyond its size and is incredibly easy to play. It makes learning the cello and falling in love with the instrument the most natural thing in the world. A highly recommended instrument, beautifully finished and perfect for a young beginner cellist/cellista.
