A Cello by Sebastian Ribes, Cremona, 2021

Price range: £25,000 - £50,000

Sebastian Ribes was born in Mexico City in 1970. He began his violin making studies in the workshop of Masters Antonio Carriedo and Octavio Aranda in Xalapa, Mexico in 1991. He apprenticed there for two years, and then following his masters’ advice, he enrolled at the International School of Violin Making in Cremona, where he found himself immersed in the world of classical lutherie.

He attended the school from 1993 to 1997 under the guidance of Master Vincenzo Bissolotti. After obtaining his diploma, he apprenticed for Masters Francesco and Vincenzo Bissolotti for several years. During this period he acquired the knowledge and mastery of the method and technique to continue his craft independently.


We have been lucky to have sold many of his fine instruments and this cello came 4th in the 2021 Triennale competition of Cremona. It’s a very Beautiful Strad model with an open sound.
