A copy of a famous Strad?  The Emile Gillet cello is modeled after the famous Gore-Booth Strad made by Antonio Stradivarious in 1710.  And who was Gore-Booth?  Many famous violins and cellos actually are named after either the first owner who many have also commissioned the instrument or after someone who owned the instrument at a later time (e.g., the "Paganini" violin or the Davidov cello now played by Yo-Yo Ma).  The Gore-Booth was was named after the English amateur cellist Sir Robert Gore-Booth who owned the cello around 1853.  The particular model was chosen because of its tonal qualities, form, outline and sheer beauty.  (Even the stress marks and varnish wear has been copied.)  All Gillet cellos are made from the best materials available in the world.  The most important ingredient, the wood, is cut deep in northern China forests.  The famous violin makers of history would no doubt marvel at these old-growth forests if they could see the beauty and quality of the instruments from these magnificent trees.  The centuries-old tradition dictates, the top of the cello is carved out of aged spruce and the back and sides of maple.  The fingerboards are made fromt he best ebony.  All the other major accompanying accessories, like the French maple bridges, endpins and cello strings, are specially imported from France and Germany as these countries are still the leaders in the finest accessories.  Also, we have specialist websites for violin strings as well as a wonderful web site, simply dedicated to viola players and viola strings.  All four sites, String Emporium, cello-strings, violin-strings and viola-strings, offer the best prices and the most quick and friendly service.
