Aldo Zani 4/4 cello, Cesena, Italy 1965

$36,000.00
Code: CL~B02-41

Description:

Made by the 20th Century Italian maker Aldo Zani, this cello has a unique mixture of varnish colors as well as a beautifully flamed back. The sound is resonant, smooth, and well balanced. It is also currently set up with posture pegs on the bass side of the peg box.

The back is formed from two-pieces of quarter-cut maple, marked by wide flame slanting downward towards the sides, with a slight bird’s eye figure scattered throughout. The wood of the ribs and scroll is similar to that of the back. The two-piece spruce top has straight and narrow grain, narrowing at the flanks. The back, ribs, and scroll are covered in a gold-orange varnish with a pale brown ground beneath, with the top being covered in a red-orange varnish. The cello is in excellent condition.

 

Measurements:

Length – 75.8 cm
Upper Bouts – 34.1 cm
Middle Bouts – 23.8 cm
Lower Bouts – 43.8 cm
String Length- 67.8 cm
