Introducing the MMX Performer Cello
The MMX Performer is the ideal cello for a student who has outgrown their first instrument and is ready for the next step. This cello is made from quality tonewoods and carved by hand in the MMX workshop of Guofang Wang. This model offers a fine-grained solid spruce top, quartersawn maple back & ribs, ebony fittings, and an alloy tailpiece with 4 integral fine tuners.
The instrument is hand varnished in an antique oil varnish to complete a cello that looks superb and offers a full sound with a wide tonal variety. All MMX cellos are setup in our workshop to ensure that the instrument meets our standards.
We usually have a selection of these instruments in our showroom fitted with a variety of high-grade strings for customers to try, along with a good selection of bows to pair your new cello with. Please call our team on 01428 658806 to find out what is currently available.
The MMX range
MMX has been working with master luthier Guofang Wang and his family workshop for nearly a decade, producing a broad selection of orchestral stringed instruments. For the beginner, the Student series of violins, violas, and celli offer the best start in the playing journey right through to our Signature instruments, which are perfectly at home in professional orchestral and solo work.
Attention to detail
Each instrument is diligently cared for at every stage of the production process, ensuring incredible value for money at each price point. Attention to detail is at the heart of every MMX violin, viola, cello and double bass. The tone wood panels are sourced from the forests of Sichuan or Yunnan province and seasoned to increase their strength.
The lustrous oil-based varnish is mixed to exact specifications to create a desirable antique finish which enhances both the grain and resonance of the instrument bodies. Even the fittings used are carefully selected to suit the instrument perfectly.
From the materials used to the way they are carved, fitted, and assembled, MMX aims to deliver instruments that will surpass all expectations!
