Bellafina consistently strives to make instruments that encourage the beginning cellist to enjoy learning and playing. That is our first priority.
Starting with a select spruce top and maple sides, we then add an all-ebony fingerboard and pegs. In the US, we hand carve a 2-year aged maple bridge then string it with D’Addario Prelude Strings. Prelude strings have the warmest sound available in an affordable, solid steel core string design. Prelude is also the educator’s preferred choice for student strings due to their unique blend of warm tone, durability, and value.
We finish off the instrument with a well-aged Brazilwood octagonal bow with silver grip and ebony frog. The 15mm padded case includes a bow pocket and backpack straps for easy carrying.
The result is an outstanding, affordable, entry-level instrument, setup in the US, with all of the features today’s Music Educator requires.
