Of course I don't want to get a Chinese cello(that's what i'm trying to get rid of) I am looking for something that has more quality and a little more prestige. I have run into a couple Romanian cellos that are decently priced made by Becker but I don't want to bite at anything. The price range I am looking around would be $1000, give or take 300, for an intermediate cello.
Could anybody direct me to some brands, links, cellos, etc... The cello world is rather difficult to navigate in comparison to guitars and violins.
