A beautiful instrument

14.07.2016
I was directly in the shop and could try different Celli there. It should be noted that I already had a good contact to Thomann in the run-up for trial previews of my 3 favored cellos and appointment agreement. It relieves unnecessary stress on both sides and you have time to be able to advise and to try out.
I had a competent contact person in the business itself and never felt that something was "swabed up" there, but one was anxious to fulfill all wishes to the instrument. Here again a very special thanks.
To the cello itself, it is quite clear that in this price category hardly another could keep up. It has a warm soft sound. In the lower notes you can see how much power behind it and also in the higher layers it does not sound shrill but full and round. It is very easy to play and also the quality leaves hardly any wishes open. In addition, it is also nice to watch. As shown in Fig.
I'm still with this cello in the Einspielphase and am curious how the sound will change, but so far this is very positive. I guess in about a year I will then again better strings raise and the Cello thereby even more value up but so far the supplied strings are absolutely ok and do a good service.
I am very satisfied with this cello and I am sure that I will have a very long time for it.

Very good cello for beginners

Derik, 19.09.2012
As a beginner, I have been looking for a cheap cello, which is what I like in sound and handling (position of the layers). I have tried in Treppendorf several cellos of the lower price class and finally decided me for the Höfner H5.

Above all the very balanced and full sound convinced me. However, there are great differences between the same cellos. I also had a second H5 brought to the comparison, but this could not convince me at all.
Above all, the paintwork (red-brown-matt), I immediately addressed, but the second H5 also had a different paint finish.
The enclosed bow is ok for the beginning, but I find it a bit too thick, which I first had to get used to a time.
Furthermore the Cello Kolofon is included and, which was also decisive, a very good suitcase. Me several compartments well for notes and accessories. There is also a parquet schooner for the sting. Only the backpack set is not thought through. The straps are much too short and too deep, which makes the suitcase about 50cm above the head, which is quite impractical. Höfner was to improve.
But all in all, the cello is definitely a purchase recommendation.

Conclusion:
+ Very balanced sound
+ Good workmanship
+ Bow, kolofon, suitcase with it
+ Price / performance

- Backpack set not thought through at the suitcase
