ENDEAVOUR ‘Interceptor' Cello

"Music is about devotion, and knowing when to be free." -Leonidas Kavakos



Endeavour electric cellos are hand-crafted to quality specifications of The String Workshop.

Now available in two colours: Black carbon fibre, or White carbon fibre.

These electric cellos stand out from other brands of ‘cheap’ and ‘low-spec’ electric cellos which unfortunately swamp today’s market. Endeavour electric cellos are built to higher spec requirements, and produce an alive, clear resonance which exceeds the tone of other electric cellos in this price range.  They are made from select and seasoned tonewoods, hand crafted, and then carefully wrapped in carbon fiber vinyl for a modern look, and undergo thorough quality control checks before being sent to New Zealand. Once they arrive in New Zealand, they are again inspected and evaluated for quality. Each instrument is then personally set-up by Phil Whitehead and professionally adjusted for perfect playability, and for the most clear and ‘sizzling’ tone.

New Zealand’s performers agree; "Endeavour electric cellos are excellent instruments."

The ENDEAVOUR “Interceptor” series electric cello outfit Includes cello, carbon fibre bow, protective carry bag, and rosin.
