The Stentor Conservatoire cello outfit is chosen by intermediate players and above and often recommended by teachers as a step-up instrument for students.
It offers a high standard at a reasonable cost. The instrument is hand carved from attractive selected tonewoods and the outfit is complete with a lightweight hard case and good quality bow.
The Conservatoire has a carved spruce front and carved flamed maple back and ribs, finished in Stentor’s Shellax varnish. With ebony fittings and traditional inlaid purfling, this is a high quality cello outfit.
It comes with a selected wood bow with natural horsehair and a full mounted ebony frog and a lightweight hard case with integral cover and carrying straps

What makes our Cellos Different?
We don’t just rent any instrument, we want to encourage the player to learn and enjoy, so we take a good quality instrument and then:
Adjust the height of the bridge and nut. (Too high and the strings are hard to press down. Too low and they buzz on the fingerboard)
Check the curve of the bridge. (Too shallow and you play 2 strings at once, too high and you catch the wood at the edge.)
Check the fit of the pegs. (Too loose and the instrument won’t stay in tune. Too tight and it’s very difficult to tune!)
Check the fit and position of the soundpost. (Too tight and it can crack the cello. Too loose and it will keep falling down. The sound is stifled if it is positioned incorrectly.)
Fit high quality strings for increased sound quality. (RRP 77.00)
We swap out the factory supplied bow, with a quality P&H bow.
