The outline of this Stradivari model has symmetry and proportion which are not only beautiful, but also produce a very desirable tone. The shoulders are gently sloping for ease of passing into the higher thumb positions. The table between f-holes is strong and broad, yet the bow easily clears the center bouts unencumbered. This model cello speaks dynamically in a pure voice with an intricacy of overtones.

The body of this cello is slightly smaller than standard full size, with a correspondingly shorter string length.  This provides an ease of play while maintaining a full-bodied depth of sound.
