Handmade and hand varnished by Eastman Strings, the Westbury cello as either a stand-alone instrument or the option to complete your ideal outfit. The Westbury cellos are fitted with quality ebony fittings, French Despiau bridge and factory strings.
We offer two different levels of setup;
Shop setup: We give the cello a visual inspection, stand the bridge and tension the factory strings. This is the type of setup that you would typically get from a high street general music shop.
Workshop setup: This is a comprehensive setup carried out by our Luthier in the workshop. The cello will go through a thorough ground up setup including all the necessary adjustments needed to transform the cello into a much more playable instrument.
Although shop setup is better than most internet retailers offer, we would always recommend having a proper workshop setup carried out on a cello as the resulting difference in playability is huge. Whoever is playing the cello will make progress more quickly giving them a significant head start.
Strings: We can offer a string upgrade from the standard steel factory strings.
