It is with great pleasure that I present my collaboration with the talented violin maker Vik Vandamme. He worked in my workshop in 2019, and during last year he built a cello for me. The cello is built from materials from my rich stock; Italian alpine spruce, a very special whole base in willow, frames in European flame maple and neck in maple that is spliced elegantly on the worm in willow.
The cello was built in Vik’s workshop in Belgium under close follow-up by the undersigned. When the cello arrived at my workshop wood white, I continued with my self-composed oil paint and rigged it up so that it would fit like a glove with its future cellist owner. Thanks to the entire base of willow, the cello has a dark and glossy tone with fullness throughout the register.
The cello is equipped with Spirocore Wolfram C + G and Larsen Soloist A + D. This is the instrument for those who want the taste of a von der Lippe cello, but at a very nice price.
The cello has been sold to a happy cellist in Norway. Feel free to click through the pictures below to see more of the cello.
