Demonstrations of Violoncellos da Spalla by Don Rickert

Having our instruments in the hands of some truly world-class musicians has been a real blessing. There are some really good Albert Chang with Rickert Cello da Spalla 2 demonstration videos of our violoncellos da spalla out there. This page brings them, or at least the ones we know about, into one place. Click and enjoy!

Those videos on YouTube and several other video streaming services have previews. Those on Facebook do not.

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of purchasing a Violoncello da Spalla by Don Rickert, please visit Don Rickert Musician Shop. We are one of the most prolific makers of these instruments in the U.S. We are located in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of North Georgia on the North Carolina border.

  • Check out the cello da spalla and nyckelharpa by members of the Swedish group Vasen near the end of the video stream. The cello da spalla in this video is NOT by Don Rickert. It is included here as inspiration to those interested in the violoncello da spalla's use in genres other than baroque.
