Here's what all you get:
Lightly distressed antique varnish shading from dark red-brown to golden brown
Rich, dark and strong tone. This cello has more harmonics and overtones than any cello I've heard before. This is usual for the Eastman 305 model.
I can hear a note sustain for 12 seconds on an Eastman 305 cello, beautiful clear vibrations just ring throughout this instrument. It will lift your spirits!
Professional setup with French Mirecourt Aubert #7 or Despiau C bridge, and D'Addario Helicore C/G and Kaplan D/A strings
Nice padded soft case and great BC60 Eastman pernambuco bow offered at a hefty discount along with this cello!
Also upgrade to an incredible fiberglass hard case with wheels and backpack straps in 4/4 to 1/2 sizes in several brilliant colors. These can be seen and ordered in the Cases section of this website: http://store.gotofmi.com/eaficehacaww.html. You can also get a superb soft case with wheels if desired.
Outstanding Andreas Eastman, quality solid carved cello instrument for sale, hard to beat at this price. Goes for much more in fine music stores that carry them.
Insured shipping to the lower 48 U.S. States is $95.00. We take a lot of additional care shipping your new cello so it "CAN'T" get broken in shipping. It will be double boxed with extra padding to guard against shipping damage. It will also be shipped with the sound post in the correct position instead of knocked down which saves you a trip to a local music store to reset the soundpost.
You can't ship with the soundpost in place in a carved cello unless the cello is double boxed and padded well against impacts.
3 to 4 out of 10 get broken when shipped in the single box packaging that cellos standardly ship in. We got tired of that breakage and now double box and pad well even though it costs a lot more to ship - and we have not had any break this way. Don't expect we ever will when packed this well.
The $95.00 is for the additional cost of shipping a larger box and doesn't even cover packing materials, additional labor and larger shipping box costs.
