“forma buono” or “the good model” by
Stradivarius himself, this cello form
has served as the most replicated and popular cello since its creation in 1710.
Embracing the ornately stylized instruments of Giovanni Paolo Maggini from the early 1600’s, the Decorated Maggini pattern features double purfling complimented by an intricately carved design into the back plate.
A wider area between theC-bouts gives the Montagnana pattern cellos a broad and deep resonance with a bold yet tempered bass register
