A cellone is a large cello invented in 1882 by the German luthier Alfred Stelzner. It is held like a cello but tuned to E A D G, a fourth below the cello and two octaves below the violin. Its music is written in the bass clef. Its body length and its breadth slightly exceeds those of a normal cello, but it sounds much deeper than a normal cello.[1][2]

It is rarely used by composers. One of the few works where it is used is the Sextet in D Major for Two Violins, Viola, Violotta, Cello, and Cellone, Op. 68, by Arnold Krug.[3]
