Few instruments are so effective at conveying expression as the cello. From low, resonant bass to soaring highs, hearing a cello performance can be a deeply moving experience.
Our VC5S is the perfect cello for beginners. Our artisan instrument makers have handcrafted its wooden body, following the same traditional methods passed down through the centuries by master cello makers, using spruce tonewoods for the top (front) and maple tonewoods for the back and sides.
The VC5S comes as part of a kit - or 'outfit' - which also includes a cello bow, cello softcase and rosin (a plant resin-based substance rubbed onto the bow to increase friction between bow hair and strings and thus improving the transfer of energy from bow to cello).
We make the VC5S in 4 sizes - quarter-size for very young children, half-size and three-quarter-size for older children and full-size for teenagers and adults. In terms of design and specification, all sizes are identical.
