Description
Ever since we played on Francesco Toto's instruments in his Cremona workshop back in 2018, we have been trying to have one of his phenomenal cellos at our London showroom. This is one of the rare instruments that in our opinion, score very highly across a wide variety of categories: the craftsmanship is some of the finest we have ever seen. The varnish has a rich golden colour and an incredible depth that brings out the tasteful and refined choice of wood. Extreme attention was paid to the setup, resulting in an instrument that is very easy to play. The sound is in one word, outstanding. It was a warm, expansive and rich tone that fills a hall and a response across the instrument like no other cello we have tried. Truly, a cello to be seen and heard in person.
