Best Cello Luthiers: Frank Ravatin

Looking for a new cello, but don’t have the many hundreds of thousands of dollars for an old Italian instrument? The living French luthier Frank Ravtin has won prizes at top competitions in Europe and America.  He studied in Cremona and Paris, and top cellists around the world own and perform on his instruments.  He has a long waiting list, but his instruments are worth it:  they produce a warm, rich sound that can project to the back of any concert hall.

  1. I am having my second Frederic Chadiere cello made at the moment. Chaudiere is also in the top league of modern makers. I have had some very great instruments on loan, and Chaudiere’s cello was my preference in recording and performing. My advice: spend less, don’t buy old – you’ll never regret it.
