Hidersine Preciso 4/4 Cello Outfit
Using solid hand-carved tonewoods and high quality fittings and accessories, the Preciso cello outfit represents both superior quality and remarkable value. The Preciso features traditional inlaid purfling and is finished with a light brown varnish antiqued finish for a truly stunning and unique instrument.
Ebony - Feels great, plays great:
Preciso cellos all benefit from a genuine Ebony fingerboard. This prized hardwood has traditionally been used for fingerboards for hundreds of years due to its truly long-lasting properties. Unlike stained or ‘ebonized’ softwoods often used on student instruments, genuine Ebony will not mark, pit or wear out under lengthy playing periods. Rather it will remain structurally sound for a very long time, and will also feel smooth on the fingers, helping make the playing experience more pleasant all round.
A Premium, Fully-Mounted Bow with Ebony Frog:
The bow is naturally one of the most important parts of any bowed instrument setup, and the particular bow supplied with the Preciso cello has been upgraded to a ‘Fully-Mounted’, high-quality Bulletwood model.
The term ‘Fully-Mounted’, refers to an upgraded and more intricate join between the ‘frog’ and the ‘stick’. There is a smooth metal plate between the frog and the bow stick, allowing a smooth fit and protection for the wood as it slides back and forth as the bow is tightened and loosened. So, not only will the Preciso’s included bow assist in producing a superb tone, it will perform its duties for a long time to come.
Looks and sounds more beautiful throughout its life:
Hidersine Presico instruments feature a hand-carved solid spruce top – or sound-table. This is important because your instrument’s primary voice is formed by this sound-table, and therefore the top can resonate as a single, coherent structure and sound great as a result. Plus, as the wood ages and the solid tonewood top gradually relaxes at a cellular level into its natural rest state, it will resonate even more naturally, and the sound will improve further.
Hidersine Presico Cellos not only have solid tops, but they also have beautiful solid, flamed Maple ribs and backs too. These highly figured, solid tonewood sections further enhance the instrument’s natural tone. The top produces the instrument’s primary voice, and the back and sides add the character. (The term ‘Flamed’ refers to the figuring of the Maple grain, which looks like flames striking across the wood. Maple with a natural ‘flame’ is highly prized, with the most intricate and stunning natural grain patterns demanding very high prices throughout the world of musical instruments.)
Each instrument created by skilled hands:
The form of your Hidersine Presico Cello will be the result of genuine hand-carving techniques. Not only have the intricate curves of the top, back and ribs been carefully tooled, but the neck and the beautiful scroll has been skilfully crafted.
Although most musical instruments have a fair amount of human input in their building process, unsurprisingly instruments created for the entry-level tend to have much higher levels of machine-made elements. While this makes the process efficient, it can take away from the individual ‘soul’ of each instrument. Each mark from the luthier’s carving tools are there for a specific reason. The amount of time taken to carve the arched tops and back of a cello is integral to their structure – lightness and strength - and the resulting tone. Luthiers have been passing their immense skill down the line for centuries, and in the case of Hidersine Presico instruments, the skilled hand-carving techniques can be truly appreciated.
