A cello by Charles Adolphe Gand

Paris, 1847

Born into a dynasty of distinguished violin makers, Charles Adolphe Gand joined the family business in the rue Croix-des-Petits-Champs in Paris in 1845. Throughout his career he was awarded numerous prizes and awards for his workmanship. This cello is a highly representative example of Gand’s early work. His maturity as a maker and eye for detail are evident in the beautiful edgework, the f-holes and the varnish. The model used is his personal interpretation of a Stradivari model, whilst staying stylistically faithful to the Gand family’s instrument making tradition.

This cello sounds powerful, clear and responsive in all registers.
