With a specially-created and unique Antique finish, each Hidersine Veracini cello oozes class and historical authenticity. Hand-carving of each part of the instrument creates a sonically rich core with a full and mature tone, ideal for an accomplished ensemble performance.

Everyone loves an old, antique cello, and so using clever techniques developed over many years, the Hidersine Veracini is finished with various ‘antique’ markers. Each instrument is uniquely treated to replicate the appearance of a much-loved and often-played example, with pitting of the body and varnish wear-marks evident across the body.

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. Hidersine Veracini 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 form of your Hidersine Veracini 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 (head) 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 Veracini instruments, the skilled hand-carving techniques can be truly appreciated.

Veracini 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 Veracini Cello will help you to produce an enriched tone, plus it offers a premium touch in the form of a bulletwood, fully-mounted, with a genuine Ebony ‘Frog’

The Hidersine Veracini cello is supplied with a basic case, we would highly recommend you consider an upgraded case to suit your requirement.
