Cheap and very good cello

28.11.2015
My name is Andreas Thiemig, 53 years old, a former professional musician, now a semi-professional (usually without payment). Play the entire standard repertoire (about 30 hours cellomusic, can be seen and heard on my website).

With this cello I was looking for an affordable alternative to the overpriced antiques, with which no one is really happy. Apart from orchestral musicians with a good salary and for a few soloists, there is virtually no string instrument in the high five to six-digit price range, not to mention the millions of old masters.

About Cello Otto Jos. Klier Cello:

The cello looks similar to the one shown in the picture (slightly lighter), but more importantly: it sounds as in the sample presented, the input motif of Haydn C major, 1st movement. Many thanks to the colleague for the recording. These sound samples should become mandatory.

The workshop Otto Jos. Klier currently sells only online via dealers like Thomann, which lowers the price. The cello can not be played before the purchase. To put it briefly: From my experience with various Celli up to the French master in the middle five-digit price range, I would spontaneously set the sales value to around 7,000 - 10,000 euros, according to the traditional customs of the repeatedly traded, thereby becoming ever more expensive stringed instruments . The tone is large, balanced and brilliant.

There is something to be observed for buyers:

The cello comes ready to play (!), But very carefully packaged. Of course, the mood has yet to be established. A certificate is included. Carefully raise the strings, the strings need two days, otherwise they tear. There are Thomastik strings on it, I would recommend Jargar Medium. These cost even a little less and fit better with Otto Jos. Klier Cello. Anyone who now responds will notice a light metallic sound at the beginning, which is due to two things:

- There are brand new Thomastik strings on it.

- The cello has never been played by anyone. However, every string instrument must settle.

Another note to the workshop: The bridge was set too low for my private taste. I bought in the winter, in the summer, the strings sink even further, I will raise the bridge slightly (max. 1 mm). This is, of course, due to the fact that I am strikingly close to the bridge. It definitely does not clash, many cellists will be very satisfied with the altitude.

A little more for the price: On my website (I can be found by googling) you can get sound samples of a Wilfer cello at the same price as this Otto Jos. Klier Cello and an Emile Germaine Cellos at a price of 45,000 euros. Guess what kind of cello was played. Most candidates are mistaken. The prices for the antiques are no longer just unreal, they are surreal. They can not be justified by the sound, even scientific investigations.

To conclude: The Otto Jos. Kliercello is flawless and unbeatable with regard to the price-performance ratio. I think I can get old. I recently sold my sensitive Emile Germaine, but the Primadonna did not stop the weather.

Bravo to the workshop Otto Jos. Klier (the founder has now passed away).

Take Jargar strings.

Best regards

Jewelry with clear tones

21.10.2016
If, for more than ten years as an amateur and hobby player, he practiced on an instrument with Mitenwald - Adorf 's glued - in notes, and the decades - long ears were never quite satisfied with choruses and other instruments; If one thinks that this is due to one's own incompetence, then this instrument of the company Otto Jos. Klier to treat. Even the outward impression with its simple elegance and beauty can inspire. Of course, this cello, like every wooden instrument, has its own character and it lasts at least weeks until instrument and player have adjusted to each other. But then the sounds of all the strings sound in beautiful clarity and quickly forget the hollow and dull sound of the predecessor.
Thank you, company Otto Jos. Klier, I would never want to miss this instrument any more.
