The MMX Student is the ideal choice for advanced students or young professional ‘cellists on a budget as it represents unrivalled value for money. Each instrument is carved by hand in the workshop of Guofang Wang, whose family business in Beijing is held in high regard by luthiers all over the world.
Every ‘cello is composed of a solid spruce top with maple back and sides and ebony fittings. These tonewood panels are sourced from the forests of Sichuan or Yunnan province and seasoned to increase their strength. The body is finished with a spirit-based lacquer to provide protection and create an attractive antique sheen.
Before leaving our warehouse, the bridge and soundpost are carefully positioned and adjusted by our team of string specialists which helps to get the best possible resonance and tone from the ‘cello. The instrument is then strung with a set of deluxe D’addario Prelude or Alphayue strings. and the action adjusted further if necessary.
All our MMX Student series instruments are supplied as an outfit that includes a padded gig-bag, carbon composite bow, and rosin. We normally have a selection of these instruments in our showroom, so please drop in or give us a ring if you’d like to try one out!
