Full of unique character & charm

A gorgeous instrument, will be especially useful for scores that need a more interesting sound than a traditional bowed instrument. Not as much body to the sound as a regular cello, which is expected, it's beautifully played and recorded. Slightly folky, enigmatic, reminded me somewhat of a low register nyckelharpa. Personally I wasn't keen on the vibrato on the sustains, but the range of articulations more than made up for it. Bargain!
