Thurmond Knight No. 70, 2012

21,000.00

Thurmond Knight, who ranks among America's finest makers, has created a Montagnana model that is visually and tonally stunning . Thurmond studied for years with the legendary Karl Roy, later served as Roy's teaching assistant, and now instructs talented luthiers at his Glover, Vermont shop (which has been visited by a number of top professionals including Joyce Hammann - concermaster of Phantom Of The Opera).  No. 70 is beautifully made with eye-popping figure in its ribs and back, a terrific piece of spruce for the top, and a lovely depth of varnish.  Its tone is wonderfully rich and warm, from its deep-throated bass all the way to the powerful but amazingly sweet upper register.  Even with its unusual smoothness and evenness this cello still possesses great focus and power and will compete with the largest grand piano. One of the finest overall cellos we've ever had.

Please call (802 229 1501) or email (pperleycellos @aol.com) for more detailed information on this instrument, or to schedule a trial. You'll always speak with an owner.
