I got a new cello recently! It’s an old English cello made by Lockey Hill in c.1790. Its incredible. I fell in love with its warm but projecting tone instantly and putting new strings on that are a bit lower tension to suit its old English nature only made it better. I can tell I will be playing this cello for a very long time. As for bows, I am using a gold-mounted John Stagg bow which i am still getting used to as its a big jump up from my 3/4 bow in both size and quality.
