I absolutely love this cello! This is the second cello I've owned. When I played it it just sounded beautiful (not necessarily my playing,THE TONE! haha). The neck very comfortable and the set up was pretty good! The only thing I didn't care for is the aluminium tailpiece and wonky fine tuners. I ordered an ebony tailpiece with top notch fine tuners and have fallen in love with this thing, It hold tune very well!
This is a pretty good demo of the tone of these instrument. They appear to be recorded with a Rode Nt1 or Nt2a micmaybe 5-6 ft away. But the song gives a great idea of what range of the Thompson Cello sounds like. Close your eyes and float away!
