The Hidersine Piacenza is a hand-carved cello, designed and built with care and attention. Ideal for taking players into more advanced musical territory, making more complex pieces and techniques achievable.

The Hidersine Piacenza cello 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. Not only does the Hidersine Piacenza have a solid top, but they also have a stunning 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.

It’s important to understand the hand-carved element of the Hidersine Piacenza’s construction. 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 violin is integral to their structure – lightness and strength - and the resulting tone. Luthiers have been passing their learned skill down the generations for centuries, and in the case of Hidersine Piacenza instruments, the skilled hand-carving techniques can begin to be truly appreciated.

Piacenza cellos benefit from a genuine Ebony fingerboard and pegs. This prized hardwood has traditionally been used for fingerboards and pegs 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.

The bow is one of the most important upgrades you can make to any bowed instrument setup. The upgraded bow included with your Hidersine Piacenza Violin, Viola or Cello will help you to produce an enriched tone, plus it offers a premium touch in the form of a genuine Ebony ‘Frog’.

The Hidersine Piacenza cello is supplied as an outfit, complete with what you need to get started. Included is a quality, padded carry case case with a bow holder, accessory pockets, and comfortable straps.
