The cello is of French Mircourt origin and of early 1900s vintage. It is full-sized and is a typical Mircourt factory instrument. It is in exceptionally good condition with very few minor cracks and has its original varnish. It has an attractive appearance (see pictures) and a magnificent sound when compared with other Mircourt instruments. It is deeply resonant, does not sound nasal, and has a clear sound that projects well. This would be ideal for an advanced student or even a professional who is not impressed with labels, but wants a wonderful instrument for regular work. If you did not know it was a standard factory instrument, you would probably estimate its value much higher than the $8,000 asking price.
The cello is located in Monterey, CA (on the California coast, about 120 miles south of San Francisco and 350 miles north of Los Angeles). If you are within driving reach of this location and are looking for a very fine instrument in this price range, please contact us to set up an appointment.
