Originally produced with the collaboration of the NY Philharmonic, in a limited edition of only 25. They are no longer available but we're keeping it on our page, just to acknowledge its beauty and the artistry of Reuge.
From the Lounge Collection by Reuge, It was an amazing concept of a beloved orchestral stringed instrument which invoked the thought of a cello as well as the violin. Its tail piece and finger board is of ebony, lacquer finished and the body made of highly polished burr vavona. It measures 589 x 221 x 185 mm and plays a masterful 3.72 mechanism.
Each one of these fabulous pieces, must be the highlight of several serious musical box collections or a single treasure of its owner!
