For Sale

Cello for Sale: Lawrence LaMay, 1975. Regina Mushabac is selling her well-loved and well-cared-for cello. She is the original and only owner. She bought it directly from Lawrence LaMay (1922-1980) in Lexington, Kentucky, in 1975. She used it exclusively and extensively for 35 years until recently when she bought another cello. Regina knew LaMay well during her two years while teaching at The University of Kentucky. She test tried many of his cellos. He designed and built this one for her, accommodating her preferences. He told her it was one of his finest instruments. It has a bold rich sound and is in excellent condition.
