THE FORTE3D DIFFERENCE: BRINGING YOU AN EFFORTLESS, BEAUTIFUL TONE

f

Your Forte3D cello represents the absolute state of the art in acoustic instrument design. By combining the rich history of traditional violin making with modern materials and techniques, your cello has been imbued with a sound worthy of the world's greatest concert halls at a price that is within reach of even beginner cellists.

While the sound alone is enough reason to purchase a Forte3D cello, we have spent the last 3 years designing, testing, and perfecting an easy-to-play, no luthier required instrument. Our instruments incorporate several distinct design advancements to achieve these goals.

U.S. & INTERNATIONAL PATENT-PENDING DESIGN

Our internationally patent-pending design employs innovative physics to enable the tops of our cellos to have a shape more akin to the cone of a speaker, with a concave profile rather than a convex one seen in traditional wooden cellos. Instead of utilizing a rigidly arched top, as is customary in traditional cellos, our tops rely on tensile strength to support the bridge, flexing inward in a manner similar to the surface of a trampoline. This unique hybrid design incorporates two flat pieces of carbon fiber, precision-cut using CNC technology, serving as both the top and back of the instrument. This groundbreaking evolution in instrument making enhances the propagation of vibrations and sound, resulting in a rich and finely-tuned tone. Due to the significantly reduced mass of our cello's top and back, as compared to traditional cellos, this reduction in weight is transformed into pure acoustic energy.

Instruments constructed out of carbon fiber using traditional methods tend to sound overly harsh and brittle. Our original Forte3D design creates a profoundly resonant, dynamic sound-box, eliminating these characteristics. As the ribs of our instruments are 3D-printed, they have a softer surface, which absorbs the unpleasant frequencies of traditional, carbon fiber instruments to produce a sweeter and more beautiful natural sound while also possessing the ability to roar over an orchestra when coaxed.

ADJUSTABLE SCROLLS

We recognized the opportunity for offering cellists a customizable instrument that still produces the same beautiful music. Never before has it been possible for a player to adjust the height of their strings without the expensive help of a luthier to cut a new bridge. All you have to do is completely lower the string tension, turn the screw, and voilà, your strings are now at the perfect height! Each cello is shipped with an Allen wrench for ultimate convenience.
