This is a lovely full-size Moennig Budapest Violoncello produced in Pestini, Budapest, around 1861. Features a lovely amber brown finish that has aged to a dark brown with reddish overtones. The cello top is made from two pieces of medium vertically grained spruce, while the back plate is fashioned from two pieces of moderately flamed maple. The ribs, like the back, share the same character as the neck and scroll. Pegs have been replaced with synthetic Wittner pegs, which are known to slip less and require less tuning. The cello offers four additional fine tuners for even more personalization. Cello still retain its original label within "Adolphus Monnig, fecit Pestini, 1861."
