Beautiful music, made the old way - real old

Shaping up the Cello

  In the City of Bangor, Maine a craftsman plies his trade the old way.  Nathan Slabodkin has made violins, cellos and violas in a time honored fashion.
  The cello being built now is made to a plan formed by Giuseppe Guamen del Gesu in 1731.  In musical instruments doing things "the old way" is found to be best.  The cello here won't be an exact replica but the plans are being used "to do things right".
