The Violectra Cello: 

Cellists can presently choose between 

4/4, 7/8 and size instrument models. 

New models can be made to measure.

Standard Features:

BODY:- A streamlined body with symmetrical extending arms at neck block for contact point with the player's body and the addition of  lower corners for contact with the player's  knee .

NECK:- The continuation of the neck under the whole length of fingerboard offering strength to resist string tension.

SCROLL:- Strings are carried over nut to holes through scroll. String ball ends lock into recessed holes on the back face of profiled scroll.Customised scroll option upon enquiry.

DBJ says " With the invention of specially tensioned strings, the Violectra Cello has the opportunity of two 5 string instruments with the popular low F tuning or as a high E tuning. Combining them both for a 6 string would be pushing the boundaries on one instrument.
