There are quite a few overdubs, and plenty of post-processing. Cellos (even when played by world-class musicians) are rarely so crisp and smooth when chugging away like that.

I have to say, if I'd dropped several grand on a carbon fibre cello I'd damn well be using it on a recording I did. admittedly I've never heard one in person, but you're not going to drop the kind of money you have to to buy one without hearing one in person and liking the tone.
Haha, it depends. Judging from the "related videos" these guys are getting around a bit in cello-playing circles... and $8k for a carbon-fiber cello isn't much in the world of classical instruments.

I've heard (but have not been able to corroborate) the Luis & Clark carbon fiber stuff swings well above its price range in terms of tonal quality, but I'd be surprised if your average ultra-conservative orchestra would want you using one onstage. The main advantage I see is durability and immunity to climate changes; if you're serious (and making a living at it) expect to spend $14-18k+ for an amazing wooden one.
