    After reading some of the other reviews, I was cautiously optimistic that I would get the cello I wanted with Cecilio. I’m a beginner, so I took it straight to the shop to have the bridge placed and get higher quality strings put on it. When it was done, I promptly fell in love with it. It is much louder and more clear and resonant than my older Cremona, and it is truly beautiful to look at. It seems very well constructed, although the guy at the shop seemed to doubt that the finger board is solid ebony, rather than stained rosewood. He assures me that the body is solid birch/maple rather than laminated, so that much at least is confirmed. The fine tuners on mine aren’t nickle as described either,rather gold plated but that doesn’t matter so much to me. Over all, the cello seems to be as described, and is lovely. The bow is exactly as described, very nice.
    When you figure that for $999.99 you get not only the cello, but a very nice hard case, a carry bag and a stand with this package, you are looking at probably about five hundred dollars worth of instrument alone, and it sounds much, much better than I would have expected for that price. Another hundred dollars for the good strings and professional set up make this cello well worth it. I was told that I may need to take the cello in for adjustments periodically for the first six months or so, and I anticipate the usual growing pains, but I have every confidence that this cello will last until I am ready to trade up again.
    The only negative issue I have had thus far was with the packaging. I’m all for recycling/reusing, but the box, the bubble wrap, even the styrofoam pads were used, worn and dirty…really dirty. Gross. But, that is a very petty complaint, and only gave me pause until I heard the cello play. There was no packing slip either, which is very odd, but luckily I won’t be needing it. This is one purchase I absolutely do not regret.

    This cello was a terrible disappointment. Cosmetically, there were several dull spots and the finish was uneven. Structurally, it was way off the standard specifications for cello construction. Since this was so far out of the standards for a cello, it would be terrible to try and learn on, and worse to play with others. Bottom line – it was hard to play, looked bad and sounded bad. I contacted the company to try and get a replacement, and they claimed that there are no standard specifications for a cello and ignored the cosmetic defects. Then, they refused to refund the shipping costs. Stay away from this cello and this company. BTW, I ordered a Knilling cello from Amazon, and it looked good, was right on the standard specifications and sounds beautiful.
