DORODESIGN likes: Prima Sonoro Introduces Revolutionary New Carbon Fibre Cello
What’s new with Prima Sonoro?
We have just seen what this manufacturer of high-performance carbon fibre string instruments has recently unveiled: the new A-Series carbon fibre cello.
Lighter and far more durable than wood, carbon fibre instruments offer more creative versatility to musicians, and the new cello gives a warm resonant sound with notes that speaks clearly across the whole range. For the musician this translates into ease of tuning, quick response and smooth and easy playing allowing for maximum expression. Combining technology, proven form and sound excellence, the instruments deliver enhanced resonance and are built to stand the test of time.
To date, carbon fibre instrument makers have compromised the traditional shape and look of the instruments in order to achieve optimum resonance, creating cellos that look like oversized guitars. Prima Sonoro’s design team has engineered a means of keeping all the positive attributes of hundreds of years of cello designers before them including the ebony fingerboard and the c-bout corners to provide superior resonance and the elegant shaping that makes each instrument immediately familiar to the cellist and the audience.
