Matteo Goffriller

Raise the subject of Venetian cellos, and players excitingly mention their great depth and powerful sound. The Gofriller captures the vibrant, penetrating tonal quality of the original. True to the maker’s intent, the very characteristic craftsmanship achieves a perfect level of grace and balance. Although the pattern is built on a grand scale, it is easy to play due to its relatively narrow upper bouts. Special care has been taken with the wood selection, arching, and graduation to produce an instrument ideal for solo, orchestral, and chamber music. The cello responds to the player’s inner voice with its agile response and ample, rich, and warm tone.
