Description

As the only known example of this specific form of instrument, this Brothers Amati five-stringed cello c.1600 from the workshops of Cremona, is something of a curiosity. Includes measurements

Bach, it is the only known example of this specific form of instrument from the workshops of Cremona’ – John Dilworth in the February 2008 issue of The Strad
