The instrument (seen here), is loaded with high end custom features like an RMC Piezo Polydrive midi system, and a high end Bogen tripod system.
This TK Electric/MIDI capable 5 string Cello features:

25+ year aged Maple neck.

A large part of this instruments phenomenal tone comes from the RMC Polydrive II Cello pickup system
The Polydrive II drives a multi (individual string) output for Hex/Midi devices; such as the Zeta "Synthony" MIDI system or Roland VG systems.
I have been playing, as well as designing and building, bowed instruments since 1990.
This Cello is the result of years of careful study of these fine instruments.
