Comments about Yamaha Standard Model AVC5 cello outfit:

This review is an addendum to the one I submitted a number of weeks ago. (My cello is the CV5, which is the model before the AVC5... Chinese bridge, wood not aged...). Since that review, I upgraded the strings to the "professional standard," Larsen A & D, and Spirocore Tungsten G & C. This instrument in this configuration seemed too "warm" or "dark" and therefore I had a luthier replace the Chinese bridge with a French-made Despiau Superieur Belgian-style bridge. The Belgian style has narrower feet, longer legs, and less mass at the top, tending to give more brightness. Today I compared my instrument, with the new set-up (the sound post had also been adjusted), with the $3,000 Jay Haide cello I had previously compared it to, which was set up with the same strings. Previously, the Jay Haide was brighter and more desirable, with better tone. Now, my A string gave better tone, and there was better clarity overall with the VC5 over the Jay Haide! The Haide did have more resonance in the lower register, especially the C string. However, I didn't feel the tonal difference was worth the money. My luthier now comments that he considers the Scott Cao 750E "Davida Stradivarius" cello to be a better instrument than my Yamaha, and if I were to buy an instrument new, in this price range, that is what I would go for (as I mentioned in my previous review). Figuring that the Jay Haide I played is probably roughly equal to the Scott Cao 750, I end up happy with the Yamaha VC5...and save the money difference. For those who buy the Yamaha AVC5 as posted at MusiciansFriend: if you want to upgrade the instrument later, try replacing the bridge before replacing the instrument itself.
