It is with great pleasure that I present my collaboration with the talented violin maker Vik Vandamme. He worked in my workshop a few years back, and during 2022 he made this cello for me. The cello is made from materials from my rich stock; Italian alpine spruce, a very special one piece back in willow, ribs in European maple and neck in maple that is grafted elegantly to the scroll in willow.
The cello was made in Vik’s workshop in Belgium under close supervision by me. When the cello arrived at my workshop in white, I continued with my self-cooked oil varnish and set it up so that it would fit like a glove with its future cellist owner. Thanks to the one piece back of willow, the cello has a dark and rich tone with fullness throughout the register.
The cello is set up 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 competetive price.
The cello is being sold on behalf of its devoted owner who has played it for a year. It has therefore been played in, feel free to click through the images below to see more of the cello.
