Hagen Weise #340 Cello
This cello was made in the workshop of master luthier Hagen Weise. Weise has been active since 1991 when he commenced work for the Roderisch Paesold Company in Bubenreuth, Germany. In 2004 Weise successfully completed his master violin-making examination. Since 2010 Weise has been dedicated to making fine instruments in his own workshop located in Bubenreuth, Germany. This instrument comes with a certificate from the maker.
The Hagen 340 has a two-piece, well-flamed maple back while the top is made from spruce. This cello has been antiqued with a good cover of golden to orange-brown varnish & has ebony fittings.
This cello has a beautifully warm sound & outstanding projection. It has excellent resonance & a well-balanced sound. The overall tone is rich & resonant which gives this instrument an easy playability. This instrument would be suitable for tertiary level study, advanced to early-professional soloists or chamber musicians. This cello is currently fitted with Larsen ‘Magnacore’ strings which add a touch of brightness & brilliance to this instrument’s core sound.

WHAT MAKES THE HAGEN 340 DIFFERENT TO THE HAGEN 330?
- Superior quality of timber (seen in the higher flame on the back, sides, neck & scroll)
- A brighter sound with greater projection due to the higher grade of timber, varnishing & workmanship
