The Raggetti Masters Series Sleeping Beauty Cello is a faithful recreation of an old master; the 1739 Domenico Montagnana (Venice) instrument, ‘Sleeping Beauty’.
The artistry of Raggetti has captured the character and history of some of the finest string instruments ever made in the Raggetti Master’s Series of recreations. Meticulous studies of the originals and iconographies, together with advanced technologies and fine making, have melded the beauty of the original instruments and the construction principles of the Stradivari & Guarneri masters.
