Advanced Cellos


Product type
Skill Level

It can take many years, often a decade or longer, before a cellist attains such a level of proficiency with their instrument that an upgraded cello that’s capable of greater versatility is required. An advanced cello is often needed because as the player’s experience continues to grow, many new and difficult techniques will be introduced that an intermediate cello is simply not capable of accommodating.

Advanced cellos are better able to respond to a variety of different bow strokes, thus allowing the instrument to produce a wider dynamic range, more powerful projection, and higher aesthetic qualities. From advanced students performing in their first competition to cellists beginning their post-secondary level studies, the best advanced cello can help them achieve their goals and give them the room they need to continue to learn.
