For more than 30 years, Engelhardt has been a trusted name among aspiring cellists of all ages and skill levels. In fact, music educators around the world are all too familiar with Engelhardt cellos thanks to their meticulous workmanship and generous price. Whether you're a student who is still in the early stages of playing or an aspiring up-and-comer who wants to upgrade to an intermediate model, Engelhardt has the perfect cello for you, and it's most likely waiting here in this catalog.
If you're new to the cello, you might be wondering what the difference is between a student model and an intermediate one. Student cellos are made specifically for newcomers to the instrument. They're a great choice for beginners because they're not overly embellished with high-end appointments, which makes them quite affordable. Before choosing a student cello, however, you should also consider the size of the player you're buying it for. Instead of a full-size 4/4 cello, a student should opt for a 3/4 size cello - or, if they're really young, a 1/2 size model. Engelhardt offers an excellent variety of student cellos, including the E55 Series Economy Cello and the School Model Cello.
Now, if you're already into your 2nd year of playing, it might be time to progress to an intermediate cello. These models have high-quality wood and craftsmanship compared to student cellos, along with a stronger, more refined sound. Intermediate cellos are sometimes even preferred by pro-level stage performers. For a beautifully-constructed intermediate cello that sounds incredible and boasts exceptional playability, check out the E120OF Cello Outfit. Sporting an ebony fingerboard, pegs and tailpiece, curly maple back and sides and a select spruce top, the E210OF is ideal for any aspiring concertist.
From bright highs to warm lows, the cello is capable of producing a wide range of sounds, which is why it's so essential for school bands and symphony orchestras. By choosing the cello as your instrument, you've proven yourself to have impeccable taste and talent, and for that reason alone you deserve a cello that was designed with your musical ambitions in mind. In other words, you deserve a cello from Engelhardt, and this selection of Engelhardt cellos has plenty of terrific options to ponder.
