Early 1900s Mustel Celeste Celesta Vintage Simone Jenco Piano Keyboard Bells For Sale

Early 1900s Mustel Celeste Celesta Vintage Simone Jenco Piano Keyboard Bells

Item Details

For sale is this early-1900's (turn of the century) Mustel Celeste/Celesta. This original 4-octave Celeste, serial number 7221, was made in Paris, France by the very inventor of the Celeste, Auguste Mustel, particularly for export to the US. Featured by the some of the utmost important and significant musicians in all of modern musical history, from Tchaikovsky and Art Tatum to The Beatles and Bjork, the Celeste has an unmistakable and charming character, which remains simply unique, and seemingly impossible to capture with even the most sophisticated sampling technologies. Nothing but a microphone can express the eloquent subtleties of an actual Celeste on a recording, and which better one to own, than that made by the creator of this fine instrument himself. Incredibly scarce, and nearly impossible to locate in intact functional condition, do not miss this chance to purchase an excellent example for the high offer of this sale, because with an average retail price hovering around $5,000.00, this represents a great opportunity to get an incredible deal!If you've made it this far, you are probably familiar with the general idea of a Celesta, and you may even know a small amount about Mustel, his father, and his creations. What might not be easy to extract from online and other written sources is the difference between Mustel celestes and others, namely, the sonic separations, which happen to be quite significant. Firstly, this style of Mustel Celeste is much different sounding from the earlier vertical mechanism variety. The earliest versions are quite warm and gentle, much like that of a Dulcitone, which happened to have been invented by his father Victor Mustel. The later examples feature a more pronounced and percussive tone, a sound for which Celestes have become most famous. Though sometimes more sharp in sound than its predecessor, the tone carried better and most definitely fits more appropriately in recordings.
With respect to other orchestral Celestes, the Mustel tone happens to be the most archetypal of the lot. Don't bother comparing a Mustel to a Jenco, which happens to be more like a Jaymar toy piano than the Mustel.You can buy a new Yamaha Celeste, at an astronomical price that eclipses the cost of a new Mercedes-Benz, or you can buy the original vintage Celeste at a price reasonable enough to make it worth having in your studio.These rarely come up for sale, and have sold in the past for upward of $12,000.00, not including the shipping from the UK to wherever it may be, so take advantage of my willingness to professionally pack and crate a genuine part of musical instrument history, and a rightful museum-piece.
