Inspired by old world craftsmanship and the artistry of Italian design, Palatino takes its name from a central hill in Rome where ancient emperors built their palaces. It is from these origins that provide Palatino its passion for incredibly crafted and meticulously detailed musical instruments. Since 1994, Palatino has been devoted to bringing together the beauty of tradition with the strength of contemporary technology to classic instruments for the world to enjoy.
Each Palatino Cello is carefully hand carved from solid woods. The top and backs are graduated to precise measurements, making sure that neither surface is too thick or too thin. This allows for the cello to have a very clear open sound. The neck is hand carved to give you a comfortable feel and the scrolls are gracefully shaped. We use only quality fittings on our cellos that complement the outstanding craftsmanship of the instrument.
The Palatino VC-450 has long been the choice of beginning Cellists because of it's fabulous value and remarkable quality. The Allegro cello outfit has excellent features at a highly affordable price. This cello is a student favorite because of its solid woods, ebony fittings and gorgeous tone. Grade A materials help provide this instrument with sweet tone and easy playability.
