Extremely resistant to damage, climate and humidity, these cellos can be played outdoors in the winter snow or in a hot, humid rehearsal hall without fear of it fluctuating or cracking! It’s perfect for outdoor gigs and in situations that may expose instruments to damage (touring, hiking, pit orchestras, schools, bars, etc).
Glasser Carbon Composite cellos are revolutionary new instruments. Glasser Bows has long been a world leader in developing advanced products with the use of composite materials. Glasser Carbon Composite instruments are the latest development.
Wooden cellos take a beating, and are often damaged by changes in climate. Glasser's cellos are much more durable. Built to last, they also look and sound great. Glasser's patent pending construction makes for an instrument with a wonderful tonal qualities and durability most instruments will never match.
The standard Glasser Carbon Composite cello arrives fully set-up with Larsen strings, Planetary Tuning Pegs, and a carbon composite Glasser tailpiece with 4 fine tuners for the ultimate tunability.

I have to admit, I got my cello from a chance contact with Glasser directly. None the less, I wanted to tell you about my cello. I live in the desert and all the shops around take cracks and split seams with the attitude, “Cracks happen, and we just repair...”. No, not for me. I have this stable, rock solid cello that does not need special care, let alone accepting cracks as a way of life. I drive an hour from the snow to the desert and my cello sounds the same, and is still in tune! It sounds deep and strong. I compared it to a German carbon fiber cello a friend has, mine sounds warmer. I did put on premium strings for a deeper low end, because I like that. The Larson’s that it came with are good but it was the Magnacore C that really sold me. I play with a New Horizons adult beginner orchestra and this cello is as good as or better than all but the best traditional ones I play with. Yeah, it doesn’t sound like the 11K wooden cello I trialed, but it is far better than any wooden ones I tried at near the same price. I got the brown orange finish. It gets raves from everyone who is not stuck in traditional wood-only thinking. Because it is constructed more traditionally only with carbon fiber instead of wood, it has the bout points and look of a wooden cello. It is heavier than the Germain style which is formed more like a boat hull. My advice for that, get yourself a light weight case since you won’t need the extra protection. I’ve played outside in the sun and the cold and I don’t worry about my cello’s varnish or sound quality. It’s deep, booming lower end and sweet, mellow top strings are fantastic. I love this cello!
