New cello!!!

Very exciting news!!!
I have recently bid on a cello in an auction at Sotheby’s and got it!!!

So please meet my gorgeous new cello by John Betts (around 1800).

At the moment it’s in modern setup, but I will soon return it to it’s former state as a classical cello with a removable endpin, wooden tailpiece and of course gut strings. Can’t wait!!
