The Rogeri Cello (4/4)
Full Oil Varnish
Made by Single Luthier from Start to Finish
Vecchio Workshop

Here is a wonderful 1710 Pietro Giacomo Rogeri cello, made by Vecchio Chow in Beijing. I must say this is a very successful copy and many of our teachers were impressed with the nice big tone this cello produces. In limited copy as the antiquating technique takes a long time to make.

TO START, it is an oil varnished, and the varnish is made by one of our client-luthier-supplier in Italy. Even we do not know the exact formula. But we are blessed because of its easy availability to us.

This cello is a no nonsense oil-varnished cello suitable for most professionals. Antiquated slightly for that fine touch, it is a cello with a lot of charisma. In old China, many houses are torned down to make way for new construction and the spruce that is used on these torned down houses can be used for making violins and cellos. We're lucky to acquire some of these very special aged wood, each of at least 50 years old, to be used to make one of our best models.



  • 100% Handmade, 100% hand oil-varnished
  • Selected Seasoned Spruce Top, naturally air dried (over 50 years)
  • Selected Seasoned Flamed Maple Back, Ribs & Scroll, naturally air dried (over 12 years)
  • Ebony Fingerboard
  • Hard-carved pegs, tailpiece and chinrest
  • Genuine Inlaid Purfling

What's in the box when I buy this item?

  • One cello (fully fitted)
  • One cello soft bag
  • Comes with tailpiece, strings, 1 fine tuner, shaven bridge, shaven pegs, packed separately so shipping of cello is safer

  • For instruments, soundpost may dislodge during shipping. No amount of good packaging can prevent soundpost from dislodging because it is a loose piece of wood inside the instrument. Fixing a dislodge soundpost is the responsibility of the buyer.

If you like instruments from small workshops...

"I am a violin trader and I come from Singapore. I work with small chinese violin/bow workshops. Currently, I represent an Alliance of Small Violin & Bow Makers. If you like instruments from small workshops, then maybe the violins/bows I supply will suit you. These violins/bows are made by one maker from beginning till the end.

I take great pride in my work and I expect nothing short of good quality from the violins I choose.

For resellers and violin teachers, I welcome you to discuss wholesale after you sample my violins/bows from ebay. I have various luthiers with unique styles in their violin and bow making techniques. At ebay, I show mainly one luthier's work. I cannot offer very high volume as these are made in small workshops and not large factories. But I can offer a good selection of different luthier's work.

Thanks for reading and happy bidding." Read more about me
