    Beautiful and good quality Cello!, August 5, 2014

    I’ve been playing the Cello for almost 5 years now, and I finally decided to buy my first Cello. My family doesn’t have a lot of money, and Cellos originally cost around $1000, and I just simply couldn’t afford it. Luckily, Amazon had the answer. Let me tell you, I was definitely skeptical about buying a cheap Cello from a website. I read articles saying that buying a Cello online was terrible and it would break in a flash. I also found out that you had to put the bridge in yourself, and that was something so terrifying for me because if I broke the bridge (which is, in my opinion, the most important part of the Cello) I would be heartbroken.
    However, I bought it anyways and a couple weeks later I found a giant box on my doorsteps waiting for me. The hard case fit very snug inside the giant box and it took a while to take out, but the Cello was just beautiful. The fine tuner was wrapped around protective paper and the bridge was located safely inside the little storage area inside the case. Also, the bow was inside a plastic bag and safely tucked inside the case.
    It came with one extra package of strings, a music stand, a cello stand (I never use because I have crazy dogs running around my house but it is also very good quality), rosin, a metronome, a hard case (this is the case I prefer because it provides more protection and it also has a lock on it but I think I broke the lock which was a bummer. Also, the case has wheels and very light so it’s easy to transport to places), a soft case, the Cello itself (obviously. I also uploaded some pictures of it if you want to see what mine looks like) and a bow. The bow has some loose strings when you tighten it but once you put a ton of rosin on it it works very well. There are instructions that come with the Cello that tell you how to put the bridge in, but I took it to my Cello teacher and he helped me put it in perfectly. Because they are new strings, they will stretch a lot, so don’t be surprised if they get out of tune really easy after you put them in.
    As I was saying in the beginning, I was so skeptical about buying a Cello from Amazon. But this is the perfect Cello for practicing or just for a beginner Cellist. I was more than happy with this purchase and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs a reasonably priced Cello. Thanks so much Merano!

    PS Because this doesn’t come with a tuner, I use the ‘Pano Tuner’ app that you can download on your phone.

    The tailpiece comes on the cello disconnected as well as the bridge, but the cello is beautiful and has a very nice color and shine.
    I absolutely adore the metronome and stand it comes with.
    The cases are nice, too; the hard foam-like one has a lock and little key, along with rolling wheels so you don’t have to carry it on your back or hold it off the ground.
    I only saw one extra set of strings, but that works for me; there’s a set on the cello itself.
    The fingerboard, scroll, and pegs are a good quality wood.
    The bow looked nice, but I haven’t really checked it out 100% yet.

    Overall, I was very satisfied to receive this cello for the price. Recommend it.
    Seller communication is very good, I got a quick response when I emailed them.
    I’ll keep this updated this week.

    The cello is awesome… Lots of stuff included as you can see. Of course this is only a “Student Cello” but it is really nice… It is hard to tune but once you get it, I am sure it will be awesome… Everything that came with this is pretty good quality, even the tuner is pretty decent… cant say anything bad about the product… the service that came with it was answered quickly… awesome product awesome service… Highly recommend…!!!
