This cello was made in the Klier workshop located in Bubenreuth, Germany. The Klier family has been making violins since 1887 with Johann Klier who set up his own workshop in Schönbach, Egerland. Johann passed away in 1918 & the workshop was passed to his eldest son, Otto Josef Klier. The Klier workshop have a wide range of products from good-quality student-intermediate options to more advanced instruments & bows. All instruments & bows are unique & of a very high standard, crafted by skilled makers with naturally aged timber. This cello comes with a certificate of authenticity. 

This cello has a two piece well flamed back made from carefully selected Bosnian maple. The top is made from aged Austrian mountain spruce. The M1 has ebony fittings and a wittner tailpiece with in-built fine tuners. It has a good cover of light to dark brown varnish that has been lightly shaded. 

Overall this instruments sound is beautifully balanced with a good level of resonance & projection across all four strings. The clarity of the upper register blends perfectly with the depth & fullness of the lower register. The M1 has been fitted with Larsen Magnacore strings to add a level of warmth to the instruments overall sound. This cello will be most suitable for the advanced level player (up to approximately AMEB Grade 8). 


  • A superior quality of timber that has been more carefully chosen (seen in the higher flame on the back, sides, neck & scroll) 
  • A brighter sound with improved projection due to the higher grade of timber, varnishing & workmanship

This price is for the instrument only (no case or bow) and includes our professional set-up.
