Roger Hansell's copy of a Cello by Peter Guarneri of Venice
A 1997 cello made for Francis Saunders, then of the London Symphony Orchestra. Made on a beautiful Guarneri of Venice pattern with a gorgeous sound and sumptuous red venetian varnish. This pattern works to naturally produce a balanced sound without any of the common cello problems. It is smooth and powerful from top to bottom. I have seen this cello a couple of times recently and remember and enjoy every square millimeter of it.
