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 add them to our website.
REPAIR & RESTORATION. Customers are often surprised to learn that their cello, which they were considering upgrading from, can be made to play much easier, look much better, and have better sound at a fraction of the cost of another cello. We do everything from complete restorations to minor repairs to tonal improvements. Our rates are reasonable, and our work is of the highest quality. Our two luthiers, Paul & Rob, have a combined professional experience of over 45 years. Contact us with your questions, and take a look at our Restoration page for some of our projects.
RESTORED OLDER GERMAN CELLOS. From time to time we have German cellos, 1880’s - 1960’s, that we have restored and sell for $2500 - $6000. Most of these are terrific players; many outplay cellos costing 10 times as much, one even soloed in the White House! All are guaranteed. When they’re ready, they go quickly. Call us to see if we have one, as not all of them make it to our website. (802) 229-1501.
SHIPPING. The cost of shipping cellos has increased dramatically in the past few years, so here's our policy. If you purchase any cello without a trial (a final sale), we'll ship it to you at no charge. If you want any cello on trial, we'll ship it to you for $150.00 for cellos over $3000.00 (we use a much bigger box), and $100.00 for cellos less than $3000. If you decide not to purchase it, your shipping cost back will be about $125.00 if the cello is less than $3000, or around $250.00 if the cello is $3000 or more . Please call us at (802) 229 1501 with any questions.
