Cello – Nearly new, full size, pristine and including rigid fibreglass case, bow, music stand, assorted music books etc. 

We bought the cello new in 2012 from Stringers, an extremely reputable music shop in London, with expertise in cellos.  Proof of purchase can be provided. 
It is ‘as new’ i.e. in excellent condition.  I have been speaking to Stringers about a fair re-sale price and they have said £1,250 and I would consider very good offers in this price range.
The cello is called ‘superior’ and it was made in China and then finished in London workshop.
The condition of this cello is fantastic – the price includes the rigid fiberglass case (very expensive to purchase and in pristine condition), bow, metal music stand, selected cello books etc.  My daughter has now decided that she will no longer be playing cello and has just left for University; thus the sale.
We live in North Finchley and I am happy for you to come and try it out before deciding.  It needs tuning (my daughter is not at home to tune) – so come prepared to tune it!

Cello for sale

£2,000 – £2,500

It is a good instrument. English, handmade, dating from approximately 1850. Slightly unorthodox in some aspects-probably made by a talented amateur. It plays well & makes a good sound. It does need a new bridge, although the current one is still standing. It would suit a grade 5+ player looking to move to a better instrument and is very slightly smaller than a normal instrument. It has been valued at between £2000-£ 2,500 – & in light of the work needed I would accept a reasonable offer.
