Introducing the Stentor Student II cello
The Stentor Student II cello is the recommended student cello outfit. It is a step-up from the Student I, which is designed specifically for those taking their first steps into the world of cello playing. This instrument would be ideal for a player looking to upgrade their first cello, someone who is looking to revisit playing, or just anyone who would like to start with the next level cello.
All Stentor cellos are carved from solid tonewoods with inlaid purfling to give the cello greater strength by having small inlaid grooves around the edges to prevent against cracks spreading. The wood is individually thicknessed for quality of sound. It has an ebony fingerboard and ebony pegs to allow extra stability and is fitted with a composite tailpiece with integral adjusters (1/10 and 1/16 size have alloy tailpiece with integral adjusters). The outfit includes a quality full mounted brazilwood bow with natural horsehair and ebony frog.
Finished in an attractive gold-brown varnish, this cello has a solid carved spruce front and maple back and sides.
Additional features and services
The cello is protected in a well-designed padded nylon cover with safety reflectors, bow, accessory pockets and back straps. Stentor's Student II cello comes with factory fitted strings as standard, but these can always be replaced with Jarger, Dominant or D'Addario strings if required, which would significantly improve the tone.
All of our cellos are subjected to a thorough set-up prior to despatch by our experienced on-site string technician. This process involves making sure the bridge is fitted perfectly, tuning it up, applying rosin to the wood bow and making sure the instrument is playable straight from the case upon arrival.The Stentor Student II is available in a range of sizes from 1/10 all the way through to 4/4 and is accessible to any age of player.
