In-home trial

Fresh off the bench of up-and-coming maker Calvin Tzeng, this cello is full-bodied and rich, with a stellar low end and crisp upper register. An antiqued model with an exquisite one-piece poplar back that is just as textured and engrossing as the tone it produces, this is an instrument that every cellist can enjoy.

Calvin Tzeng is a cellist who moved to New York to attend the Manhattan School of Music under the tutelage of Marion Feldman. During the summer of 2015, Calvin met violin maker Kevin Chapin, which sparked his interest in violin making. Calvin attended the Chicago School of Violin Making while studying under master maker William Whedbee. In 2016, Calvin left the Chicago School to become a full-time apprentice of Whedbee's until moving to Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2020.
