Cello Restoration, Repairs, Sales & Service

Paul Perley Cellos offers fine cellos and stringed instruments in all price ranges. We specialize in the restoration, repair, and sale of cellos, basses and violins. Paul Perley Cellos takes pride in the personal experience that we are able to provide to each customer, and aim to connect each client with an instrument that fits their needs. We consider our setup and adjustment services second to none, as professional and novice players from throughout New England come to the shop for tonal improvement.

We have instruments in all price ranges, and proudly ship to all 50 states and Canada. Looking for a special instrument and not finding it in our listings? Email us or give us a call. We usually have many more cellos and basses than our website indicates: quite a few are acquired and sold before we have time to photograph them and to add them to our website.

From now until January 1, 2018, Paul Perley Cellos offers free shipping on any cello we offer if that cello is purchased as a final sale without a trial. (You can trade it back toward any cello we own at any time, or we are glad to accept it on consignment, assuming that the cello is close to the same condition as when you purchased it).

Contact us to discuss the consignment, repair, restoration, or purchase of a cello, bass, violin, or bow!

Featured Cellos:

3/4 German, Late 1800's. $2850.00 A rare surviving pre-1900 3/4 cello in good condition.  This is a terrific player, with large, rich sound comparable to a full size cello, easy fingering and instant response. Perfect for a serious young person, or adult for whom a 7/8 cello is still larger than desired. Questions about this instrument? Contact us through this site or call 802-229-1501. Learn More...

German ca. 1925   $4,500.00 A cello with nearly 100 years of age that has aged the wood into producing a terrific "old" sound. This is a slightly narrower cello, similar to the Strad B-form, with the kind of tone, focus and power you hear soloists produce from a stage.  It is wonderfully responsive, suitable for solo work, chamber group, and orchestra.  The varnish has had some wear, but actually very few repairs have been necessary for a cello of this age. A great old cello at a very low price. Questions about this instrument? Contact us through this site or call 802-229-1501. Learn More...

Martin Hornsteiner 1795 (label) $21,000.00 A mid 1800's cello, beautifully made, likely by a member of the Hornsteiner family.  This is a pretty rare find: it is in excellent condition, having been obviously well-cared-for its entire life.  It is lovely to look at but its best feature is its sound. Dark, potent, with a beautifully complex edge that only comes from great wood that's been out there 150+ years.  This probably won't be around long. Questions about this instrument?
