Instrument Type: Cello
Bow Type: —
Maker: Alfio Batelli
Description: Alfio Batelli was born in Chinciano, Italy in 1903. Before establishing his own business in Florence, Italy, Batelli studied violin making under V. de Zorzi. In 1947, Batelli immigrated to the United States becoming one of the chief repairman in the country. Till his passing in 1975, Batelli was successful in crafting over 300 instruments. Today, his instruments are recognized as having been built with a tedious hand and a meticulous eye. This particular cello is a beautiful example of Italian craftsmanship. A sweet and rich tone but not an overwhelmingly powerful sound.
