A very fine example of a Edgar Russ cello, made in 2016 in his workshop in Cremona, Italy. Based on an Andrea Guarneri model, this is an example of a master luthier’s work at its finest.
The cello is extremely powerful and versatile and its sound quality could easily be compared to the best antique instruments.
At seventeen, a very focused Edgar Russ moved to Cremona, Italy, to attend the world-renowned international violin making school “Scuola Internazionale di Liuteria, Antonio Stradivari”. After gaining work experience in Cremona, the young violin maker went to the US to expand his expertise in international violin making. Already at a very early age, Edgar Russ became a master luthier.
Since 2017, Edgar Russ is also member of the board of directors of the Consortium “Antonio Stradivari”, where he shares his know-how with the rest of Cremona´s makers.
