Thomas Kennedy cello for sale

Thomas Kennedy

This fine Kennedy cello for sale was made in London circa 1820. Widely appreciated for the tonal qualities of his cellos, Thomas Kennedy often used an oil varnish which, due to its tendency to craquelure, gave rise to a rather opaque appearance. More rarely he produced a a transparent honey-coloured varnish, from which this instrument benefits. Its distinctive Amati-inspired model is comfortably compact and responsive, having a firm bass and brilliant upper register. This cello is sold with the certificate of authenticity by John Dilworth.
