Pro Student Instruments, musical instruments for sale

In this video, Mathilde Sigier plays a beautiful theme by John Williams, with our cello Cesarini Pro Studio, in its semi-professional version, and with Cesarini Selected cello bow.

Atelier Cesarini has created the semi-professional series to give the opportunity to all students with a forward-looking perspective (Academy) to buy a good cello with excellent timbre output and exceptional soundness, also the price is very interesting.

The amateur series is more suitable for all beginners, especially students who have to face the 4/4 seize for first time, but who do not want to buy an entry level.

The price of a Cesarini Pro Studio cello is even less in case you opt for a package including bow and case.

Restoration of a musical instrument, antique violins value.

Comparing the opening of a violin to restore to a complex surgical operation, which is the opening of the chest, is it right? I would say no, but many similarities can be found.

Violino restauro

The opening of an instrument is always possible, sometimes uninvited because it is invasive, but which, on the other hand, is often indispensable, and above all, can be an improvement.

As a surgical operation that wants to restore the functions of the heart, similarly to the violin to be restored, it is intended to restore its “voice”

Ebony pickup frame for a Fender guitar (Fender fail)

A simple realization of Cesarini Custom Shop, an ebony pickup frame for single coil mod. Telecaster, on Fender guitar (DOBRO style).The end of the intervention is to raise the maximum possible pickup height, given the constructive lack of Fender on this model we will remedy.

Fender Resonant, errore di produzione

This is a constructive fail on Fender’s building, that is quite serious

The use of resonant winding cords (bronze or phosphor bronze) actually requires a smaller distance between the rope and the magnet. In this guitar this distance is too much (over 20mm), preventing the output signal from having attack and volume.

Gibson comparing, guitar care is a must!

Even between two Gibson LP models of the same year (1992) the differences are well noted. The guitar care is important, let’s see why.

Setting up regularly is perhaps the most important variable, to have a performance guitar or bass that does not lose value over time

 

These two Gibsons have been changed the frets (the same dimensions for both) we reviewed the setups pretty much the same, but the playability of the instruments is still very different. The non-care of an instrument leads to make it less efficient at the fingerboard, neck and timbre.

A neck left untouched over time, can become very tenacious, but in the wrong position (upbow, backbow, or worst). Wood, by its nature, can bend in various points and can twist itself. The pickups can be demagnetized or broken. The metal parts (bridge and tuners) can oxidize to the point where they can no longer be used. And we could go on like this, listing other degenerative possibilities.

Crime scene on the bench, an antique violin

Discovering a true antique violin from the 1800s or 1900s can be very interesting.

We need to consider that almost all the old musical instruments have now been undercovered, due to the strong interest of a multitude of people that want to take possession of them. So we need to be realistic when we find something, that maybe can have value. A real antique violin of 1800, for example, it can come real damaged, rarely in good condition, expecially the top spruce and varnish.

Be aware of flea markets, or not very transparent luthiers, who try to delude you of having a rediscovered a “pearl in the desert”, dated two hundred years. More plausible it is instead a violin that an old owner wants to undo it and then sells it, perhaps through an intermediary.

In the downer photo, the instrument in restoration, has just been rediscovered in an attic. This is a bit the clichet of classical lutherie: “Nonna told me that there is a Stradivari above!”.

It is not “Stradivari“, but a copy of an old German violin with a label bearing “Stradivarius Cremonensis, etc.”, is a copy, but it retains its interest. The woods of this instrument will certainly be very seasoned, even if a bit “bruised”. Finding it partly destroyed is the least that can be expected, we consider that almost a hundred years have passed, they are not few.

Different quality compared, how to buy a cello

The following video represents the dilemma of every student or professional, where to look for the “perfect” musical instrument?

Vintage, handcrafted or studio?

We are in 2017, the era of the web is more real than ever, but unfortunately the common musician does not have exactly a precise idea of what goes on in the market and, above all, of what he needs.

Doubt is certainly a symbol of ability to discern, too much security often leads to risky purchases. Try and listen, this is what we recommend to all musicians looking for their musical instrument.

One’s own subjectivity plays an important role and must not be put aside. The advice of a friend or a professor should never be disdained, indeed it is precious, but it must be sought and not received in a coercive manner. This must never become a “dictat”, one’s taste must become contaminated with various opinions, to strengthen oneself not to annihilate oneself.

In the video Mathilde Sigier plays three cellos, in order:

1 – Semi-professional “Cesarini Pro Studio” cello
2 – Vintage Cello, old french factory (Cesarini Collection)
3 – Old violin-making, cello (circa 1800)

The cello bow used is a Cesarini Selected in round pernambuco.
