Introducing the Stentor Conservatoire cello
The Stentor Conservatoire cello outfit is chosen by intermediate players and above and often recommended by teachers as a step-up instrument for students. With a superb tone and high quality components, the Stentor Conservatoire cello gives you a quality instrument for a great price.
Hand-crafted, traditional design
The instrument is hand carved from attractive tone woods selected for their superb resonance and quality of tone with a solid spruce front and flamed maple back and sides. This cello produces a wonderfully warm, mellow sound that offers an exceptional balance between the mid, high, and low tones.
The Conservatoire has a carved spruce front and flamed maple back and ribs, finished in Stentor's super-shiny, hard wearing Shellax varnish which improves the tonal qualities of the instrument whilst highlighting the beautiful grain. The composite tail piece is metal with screw integral adjusters. With durable ebony fittings, traditional inlaid purfling for protection and prevention of large cracks forming and a good quality bridge, this is a high-quality cello outfit.
Enhancing your instrument
For a warmer and fuller sound, it is always possible to upgrade the instrument by adding Dominant or Jargar strings, which can improve the tone significantly.
Additional features and services
The Stentor Conservatoire comes with a selected good quality brazilwood bow with natural white horsehair and a full mounted ebony frog and a lightweight hard case with integral cover. As opposed to the Student I and II, a hard case provides greater protection for the instrument, making it easier to transport to and from music lessons or performances. This is aided by the addition of shoulder straps, so the case can be carried on the back.
All 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 Conservatoire is available in a range of sizes from 1/4 all the way through to 4/4 and is accessible to any age of player.
