Traditional Hand Carved Construction
With traditional, hand carved construction and flamed Maple back and sides, the Deluxe 1/2 Cello is an all solid wood instrument, sporting a hand carved Canadian Spruce belly and figured bookmatched Canadian Maple back.
At half the size of a full size cello, this instrument is identical in construction and range to the full size 4/4 cello - it is simply scaled down for children and younger adults. For the developing cellist, this means ease of playability and rich tone.
Ebony Fingerboard For Ease Of Use
The Deluxe 1/2 Cello continues to build on its traditional roots with a Maple neck. With its ebony fingerboard, progressing players will be able to replicate deft fingering patterns and experience the type of response to their touch that will encourage them onto more innovative techniques.
Bow & Carry Case Included
Included with the instrument is a Brazilwood Bow- a type of wood with great elasticity, making it perfect for instrument bows. Brazilwood is from the same tree as Pernambuco, the wood often used in high grade bows, and therefore shares many of its characteristics. This helps further create an enjoyable, pleasant sounding playing experience.
The included hard lightweight carry case is convenient and robust, and will get your Deluxe 1/2 Cello to and from lessons, recitals and venues with the minimum of fuss.

"Well built and well presented, these instruments should encourage those young cellists fortunate enough to play them. After all, the better the initial experience a pupil has, the more likely they are to succeed in the long term."
"The deluxe model represents good value to either music services or individuals looking for a solid wood instrument."

Gear4music have teamed up with some of the best manufacturers from around the world to develop our own line of music equipment. Our goal is to provide our customers with a wide choice of high quality, sensibly priced musical instruments.
Using our many years of collective experience we have developed a wide range of instruments and equipment including drum kits, acoustic and electric guitars, woodwind, brass, string instruments and speaker systems. We are proud to offer these to our customers alongside hundreds of other well-known brands. Working closely with our carefully chosen manufacturers, we endeavour to produce reliable, great sounding instruments at a price that is accessible to all. Our musical equipment is made to the same exacting standards that you expect from other highly regarded brands - this is backed up by our standard 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.
Gear4music products are produced ethically and responsibly to meet the expectations of a caring world.
The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.
However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.
The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:
- Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
- Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
- Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
- Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
- Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
- Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
- If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
- The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount
Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.
This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
