I found this sweetheart dusted over and forgotten in a storage room of a music store in Hannover, Germany in 2005, and as soon as I picked it up to play I was hooked! There was a mystery around this cello that fascinated me. I ended up bringing it back to the US and asked Gerald Field of Field violinworkshop in Highland Park IL to give it a complete makeover. His expert touch stabilized old cracks, reshaped some marks of time, and added a new finger board (the old one was made of cherry wood!). So, here it is: http://www.hanschristianmusic.com/old-german-cello.html
