William Davy 1521 Cello – SOLD


February saw the sale of William Davy cello 1521. Its recipient travelled in to try the instrument here at our workshop in Bolton and soon decided it was the cello for her. 

Hopefully this was an informal and relaxed experience with the player being able to spend as much time as necessary in order to evaluate the tone and precision of one of these specially imported hand finished instruments.

Should you have any enquiries regarding a string instrument of this quality please do not hesitate to ask.
