Snow Cellos & Outfits

Snow 400 Model Cello

400 Model Cello

The company's name, Snow, originates from the workshop owner's first name XuePing, which translates into Snow. XuePing was trained in China by the great violin making master, Quan Zheng. Quan Zheng studied in Cremona, Italy, thus XuePing's instruments are of the Italian style.

A rich sounding cello with even, focused sound.

The cello has a nicely flamed maple back and an attractive red-brown varnish shaded over a golden ground.

The Despiau "Superieur" bridge is carved by our workshop staff, who sets up the cello with the lightweight Wittner tailpiece, Larsen A and D strings, Spirocore tungsten G and C strings, and a smooth-operating endpin.

High quality ebony pegs are precisely fitted and the fingerboard is planed for proper scoop.
