Good instrument set up in our workshops with individually fitted bridge and soundpost, well fitting pegs and Pirastro strings.
NB. Each instrument is unique; wood, grain, varnish and fittings may differ from photographs.
Determining the correct cello size for a player requires the consideration of three factors; height, arm length (A) and finger span (B)**. Use the table below, ensuring at least two of these three factors match, to select the correct cello size.
**The straight-line distance between the centre of the tip of the index finger and the centre of the tip of the little finger, of a spanned hand.
The following table provides a guide to selecting a suitable instrument size. Other factors may be taken into account, including teaching method, and teacher and player preference. Instrument sizes may vary within their defined fractional size; this guide applies to Stringers’ range of instruments, and is intended to be as comprehensive as possible, but not definitive

Stringers has been supplying instruments, bows and accessories to students, parents and professional musicians since 1992. We're proud of our commitment to providing the very best service and offering the best quality, carefully chosen products, for our customers.
All Stringers instruments are set up expertly by our luthiers in our Edinburgh workshop and checked by our playing staff. This is a stand-out difference from instruments bought from non-specialist suppliers, and shops who simply import and sell instruments. Our setups really make the world of difference. Just take a look at our reviews to see how.
Feel free to get in touch to ask about any product we offer.
We offer a part-exchange upgrade pathway for all Stringers brand instruments and outfits bought, with the exception of Standard and Pre-Owned Instruments.
Instruments, bows and cases must be in resaleable condition.
