“The clear choice for the aspirational student, Hidersine’s ‘Vivente Academy’ Cello allows you to ‘spend less time tuning and more time playing’ thanks to Wittner’s incredible Fine-Tune, internally geared pegs. Add to this the solid tonewoods, an ebony fingerboard, a lightweight tailpiece and a carbon fibre endpin, and you have a truly excellent student instrument capable of dealing with most anything you ask of it.

Your new Hidersine instrument will have already been inspected and setup ‘ready to play’ in our service workshops. This means that you can buy with confidence, take your new instrument along to your lesson and be ready to go from the off.

Don't forget to choose the correct size of instrument. 
The Hidersine Vivente Academy cello is available in Full size, 3/4 size, 1/2 size.

This model is a 4/4 (Full Size) Size, so will be suitable for most teenagers and adults, but we strongly recommend you speak to your local music store or your music teacher to ensure you, your child or your student are measured for the correct size.

Wittner’s Finetune pegs are a genuine revelation for player of all standards, with even seasoned professionals choosing to fit them to the very finest instruments. But these discreet, internally geared pegs make life so much simpler for students too!

Traditionally, most bowed instruments are tuned using wooden pegs, which are ‘wedged’ into the wooden holes of the pegbox at the top of the instrument, with simple friction keeping them in place. When the strings needed to be tuned therefore, for the pegs to turn, they would have to be loosened, turned and then pushed back in. This process can take a little force and isn’t the easiest or most accurate for inexperienced hands. Plus, over time the pegs can slip – therefore losing their pitch – or stick – making them hard to turn and tune. 
Any teacher or student will tell you the amount of time wasted at the beginning or during lessons getting their student instrument up to pitch, and having it stay there!

Finetune Pegs look like traditional pegs on the outside. All the clever stuff is hidden inside.

Finetune Pegs will save hours of wasted lesson time for students and teachers.

Finetune Pegs are fitted as standard to Hidersine ‘Academy’ and ‘Finetune’ instruments.

Finetune Pegs are also chosen by seasoned professional players. They’re even fitted to virtuoso Elizabeth Pitcairn’s ‘c1720 Red Mendelssohn Stradivarius Violin’! How’s that for a vote of confidence?

Finetune pegs are also available to buy separately for Violin, Viola and Cello.
