About Mezzo-Forte cellos:
The Mezzo-Forte design concept is to develop instruments for the 21st Century. Any measurements used in traditional cello making have been transferred in order to help the player feel immediately familiar with the instrument. Therefore switching between wood and Carbon Fiber should not be a problem.
From the beginning to the end, all instruments are made in Mezzo-Forte's workshop in Germany, and they set a high value on quality and making fantastic instruments.
All Mezzo-Forte instruments come with a certificate of authenticity and a unique serial number which makes them easy to identify.
Coolest thing i own
This cello is so gorgeous in sound and aesthetic, it’s so easy to play and i’ve already dropped it a couple of times and it’s so sturdy. if you’ve been considering going in the carbon fiber direction this one is absolutely worth it and i’d buy it again in a heartbeat. fiddlershops’s customer service is so great, and they kept me updated the whole way through. thanks!
