Authentic Stradivari cellos are still being played by the world's greatest cellists, and the 1712 Davidov Strad is a fine example of the B form cellos for which he is most famous. Played in concerts and recordings by Jaqueline Du Pre and then Yo-Yo Ma in the 20th century, it is named after the great 19th century Russian cellist Karl Davidov, a contemporary of Tchaikovsky.
This Core Select Davidov is a beautiful reproduction crafted with special care in the archings and graduations for a brilliant, singing quality. The well-aged tonewoods are not only beautiful, but give the player a vibrant, flexible response capable of a variety of styles.
