    Great Cello Package, July 29, 2012

    I must say, I was fairly surprised when I my doorbell was rang by the FedEx guy three days before my cello was supposed to arrive.

    I was even more surprised when I saw the quality of the cello itself. Granted, there are a few blemishes–the sound holes and tuning peg holes had splinters of wood still in them, giving them a really rough appearance, and there are a few blisters and imperfections (and, in some places, it didn’t get covered at all, such as inside the gear box. This is my first cello, so in all honesty, I have no idea if it’s supposed to be like that or not) in the varnish.

    That said, however, this is a fantastic cello. It sounds much better than I anticipated, though I don’t think the bow is of the highest quality around. Still, it gets the job done, and for the price, it’s awesome.

    All in all, other than the minor cosmetic stuff, this is a great package. The tuner works well and clamps onto the bridge perfectly, and the stand works like a stand should.

    The only unexpected drawback was the fact that the package was missing the rosin, so I had to go buy some at my local music store. The seller, MusicianVIP or something along those lines, picked up on this immediately and there is currently a cake of rosin headed my way, which earned them nothing but respect from me.

    Overall, great cello, great seller, and great package. 9/10–I’d buy it again if I could do it over again.

    This cello is not usable without proper setup. Basically the quality is really bad.

    – The bridge that came with the cello is bad. Without fixing it your bow can easily touch multiple strings at the same time.
    – The nut (the bit above the fingerboard where the strings lie) is too high – required to be lowered.
    – The grooves in the nut where the strings sit is too shallow. Strings can be pulled out of their grooves while playing. My son did this twice while playing.
    – Most amazing of all, the tuning peg for C string actually broke while trying to tighten the peg. This was even before much stress was put on the peg. Other pegs are OK. But you can feel the A string peg having similar weakness. Basically, the wood used for the peg is not strong enough. Probably maple. Most shops don’t carry pegs for 1/8 size. It has to be specially ordered in.
    – The factory strings are horrible.
    – I can’t say I really like this sound of this “object”. I am not sure I can call it an instrument.

    You get what you paid for but I did not expect so many issues.

    I purchased this particular cello for myself. I am a middle-age women who has decided to finally pursue my passion for cello. I didn’t want to spend an arm and leg, especially since I’m a student. I was very pleased that it shipped quickly and contained everything the package specified. This cello is a great starter instrument, the sound and tone surprised me as I was wasn’t sure if it would have that “rich sound” quality, which it I found quite satisfactory. The only draw back was the clip on tuner, which I had difficulty using and broke the second time I used it. I spent about $30.00 and bought a “BOSS” electric tuner that I can hold and much easier to use (from a local music store). I also spent an extra $8.00 or so and purchased rosin specifically designed for the cello…I had no idea there were different types of rosin for different string instruments. The sound quality improved over the rosin I originally used that was sent in the cello package. The tuning pegs hold well, and the fine-tuning screws really help with minor tuning adjustments. I would recommend this cello for any first time (student) musician – nice instrument at a GREAT price (and shipping was included in the cost)!
