Bridge Golden Tasman Electro Acoustic Cello

4 string instrument, high quality woods, oil varnish and electronics. Comes with a traditional, black oblong case.

The Golden Tasman Cello is made with the best quality, handpicked tonewoods to ensure a warm, even acoustic tone. They are the top of the Bridge Range, carrying the most sophisticated, ‘state of the art’ pick up and electronics. Tuned to standard CGDA tuning the Golden Tasman Cello is an easy transition from a regular acoustic cello, with the benefits of high volume for performance with no feedback!

Front
Made from handpicked European tonewoods selected by the Bridge luthiers. The front is the best close grain spruce, and the back of highly figured maple.
Exquisite Golden, oil varnish, skilfully antiqued to replicate the finish of an 18th Italian masterpiece.

Back
Made from handpicked European tonewoods selected by the Bridge luthiers. The front is the best close grain spruce, and the back of highly figured maple.
Exquisite Golden, oil varnish, skilfully antiqued to replicate the finish an 18th Italian masterpiece.

Headstock
Inspired by the Stadivari 1710 Viola da Gamba, and modified to the modern sized peg box, this headstock has become a trademark of the Bridge Instruments. The distinctive shield, through peg box and neck is carved from a single maple block. The Tasman and Golden Tasman instruments have the electric lightening strike inlay on the shield suggesting it’s not purely the acoustic instrument it appears to be!.

Pegs and Strings
The high quality ebony pegs are professionally fitted to give a smooth tuning action. The Golden Tasman is fitted with D’Addario Helicore strings.

Fingerboard and nut
Made from the best quality ebony, the fingerboard and nut is professionally shaped to modern standard orchestral measurements, and traditionally finished.

Bridge
The Golden Tasman bridge is made from the best quality tonewood, and houses the ‘Bridge’ pick up system, a piezo crystal configuration. We designed the ‘Bridge’ pick up system specifically and only for use with our instruments. It is designed to pick up both the string vibration and the body resonance generated from the hollow composite body. Utilising all the properties of a traditional acoustic bridge it captures the warmth of tone synonymous with its acoustic counterpart.

F Hole
The F hole design reflects the lightening strike theme of the headstock, giving the Tasmans a contemporary twist and unique character.

Tailpiece
All our electric range of instruments is fitted with a boxwood tailpiece, fitted with an individual E string fine tuner.

Battery Holder
The battery holder is located neatly on the upper rib and houses a 9V battery which is readily available and easy to fit. It provides approximately 3000 hours playing time, and only drains whilst the jack is connected. Quick and easy to replace.

Bridge Active Circuitry
Each model has its own sophisticated and bespoke active circuitry frequency dedicated to each string configuration and designed to perform in conjunction with the BRIDGE pick-up system. The Golden Tasman is fitted with the most sophisticated and advanced electronics within the Bridge range.

Endpin
Ebony endpin with brass ferrule and screw. The spike is protected with a removable rubber cap.

Jack Socket
¼ inch jack - musical instrument standard. The switch jack system automatically switches the active circuitry on and off as the jack is inserted or removed. It is carved into the back plate, becoming an integral part of the instrument, positioned and angled to avoid drag and interference from the cable. We have also ensured that the angle and proportions are compatible with all common wireless solutions.
