Allow me to introduce my violoncello, Chester.
Chester is a Hans Stainer 100 model violoncello manufactured by the Eastman Strings company of Clarksburg Maryland for Senseney Music in Wichita Kansas. He was completed in 2005 and is a 4/4 sized cello.
(This was not an easy picture to take; even after several tries it’s still pretty blurry.)
At present he’s wearing a matched set of Jargar strings, which play beautifully and sound terrific.
And he has a beautiful back too.
