Vivente Academy Cello Outfit 4/4

The finest, and easiest-to-play student cello outfit

Special Features of the award-winning ‘Academy’ Series:

Tuning has never been easier:

Wittner’s Finetune pegs are a genuine revelation for player of all standards, with even seasoned professionals choosing to fit them to the very finest instruments. But these discreet, internally geared pegs make life so much simpler for students too!

Traditionally, most bowed instruments are tuned using wooden pegs, which are ‘wedged’ into the wooden holes of the pegbox at the top of the instrument, with simple friction keeping them in place.

When the strings needed to be tuned therefore, for the pegs to turn, they would have to be loosened, turned and then pushed back in. This process can take a little force and isn’t the easiest or most accurate for inexperienced hands. Plus, over time the pegs can slip – therefore losing their pitch – or stick – making them hard to turn and tune. 

Any teacher or student will tell you the amount of time wasted at the beginning or during lessons getting their student instrument up to pitch, and having it stay there!

The clever, German-engineering employed in Wittner’s Finetune pegs allows the student or professional to turn the internally geared peg in a controlled way, without the main shaft of the peg ever losing contact with the pegbox.

This means you can make tiny, incremental increases or decreases in pitch - just like tuning a guitar. Getting your instrument in tune, and keeping it there has literally never been easier….

So now your precious time can be spent on learning and playing – not tuning.. and re-tuning.

Finetune Pegs look like traditional pegs on the outside. All the clever stuff is hidden inside.

Finetune Pegs will save hours of wasted lesson time for students and teachers.

Finetune Pegs are also chosen by seasoned professional players. They’re even fitted to virtuoso Elizabeth Pitcairn’s ‘c1720 Red Mendelssohn Stradivarius Violin’! How’s that for a vote of confidence

Setup and ready to go:

Your new Hidersine instrument will have already been inspected and setup ‘ready to play’ in our service workshops. This means that you can buy with confidence, take your new instrument along to your lesson and be ready to go.

Your Vivente violin, viola or cello is supplied as an outfit, which is to say it is complete with what you need to get started. The instrument is supplied in an oblong, shockproof case with internal accessory compartments and an outer music pocket.

Most importantly, your Vivente Academy outfit includes a Brazilwood bow, without which no sound is possible. Just tighten the hair, apply a little of the included Hidersine rosin, and the bow is ready to play… as you will be too.

Lightweight in every way but tone

Hidersine’s Vivente Academy cello features a Wittner ‘Ultra’ lightweight, composite tailpiece and a carbon fibre endpin.

Both these innovative additions help reduce the cello’s overall weight, therefore making it easier to handle and transport. Plus, the carbon fibre endpin allows the instrument to resonate more fully.

A tone that will continually improve

Hidersine Vivente Academy instruments feature a solid spruce top – or sound-table. This is important because your instrument’s primary voice is formed by this sound-table, and therefore the top can resonate as a single, coherent structure and sound great as a result.

Plus, as the wood ages and the solid tonewood top gradually relaxes at a cellular level into its natural rest state, it will resonate even naturally, and the sound will improve further.

Hidersine Vivente Academy instruments not only have a solid top, but they also have solid Maple ribs and backs too. These solid tonewood sections further enhance the instrument’s natural tone. The top produces the instrument’s primary voice, and the back and sides add the character.

Ebony - Feels great, plays great

Vivente Academy violins, violas, cellos and double basses all benefit from a genuine Ebony fingerboard. This prized hardwood has traditionally been used for fingerboards for hundreds of years due to its truly long-lasting properties.

Unlike stained or ‘ebonized’ softwoods often used on student instruments, genuine Ebony will not mark, pit or wear out under lengthy playing periods. Rather it will remain structurally sound for a very long time, and will also feel smooth on the fingers, helping make the playing experience more pleasant all round.
