Gore Booth inspired Cello

Gore Booth

Available to view and buy at Bridgewood and Neitzert


This Cello was made as part of my final year at Newark School of Violin Making, using the Gore Booth Cello as a basis and then slightly adjusted to be more in line with modern setups, the original, as all Stradivari instruments made in the Baroque period with gut strings and lower tension. I really enjoyed making this instrument and it is one of my best pieces of work. The instrument has a rich and responsive tone and I have had really good reviews from people who have played it.
