Carbon Fiber cello "Hybrid Line"
Carbon fiber cello with built in pickup
Hybrid Line: Built in pickup system for playing both ways: Electrically with an amplifier - or acoustically unplugged.
Playing is believing. Check our sound samples (click on "play videos" ) and be surprised how good a carbon fiber cello can sound, and how easily the music comes out.
The cello is the result of a long term development process, the result of endless testing, experimenting and also the result of learning from mistakes.
We have put all our efforts into our carbon fiber instruments, and still we do every day.
This cello provides a new feeling, a freedom of playing, and a direct contact to your instrument which you have never experienced before.
Response, balance, volume, brightness on the A string and rich warmth on the lower strings, combined with seemingly endless power - these are only a few aspects of what you feel, hear, and bring over to the audience.
We invite you to become a believer.
Carbon fiber instruments are for sure an important part of future developments of musical instruments; we have taken the step, come and join us.!!
Don't care - just play!
Maintenance is simple: a damp cloth for daily cleaning, a mild detergent to remove grease and a standard car polish to remove scratches. No need to consult your local luthier!
The built in ANS (=absolute natural sound) system is based on dynamic microphone technology. It is very easy to use and provides an electric sound that you have been dreaming of - without feedback, absolutely natural, rich and with all overtones. Of course, this upgrade does in no way affect the acoustic sound.
