Affordable price, average quality

26.10.2014
I knew what I am buying, so I'm not very surprised of the quality - I can say that's MUCH better than I was expecting. The only reason for buying an e-cello is that I cannot bring with me my personal, handmade cello to where I am living now (a new home, in a new country) - so, it was a solution, for having an instrument to study, to keep my hands and mind in good form :-).
So - the minuses are, the bow and the headset. I bought a knew, heaviest bow, and for the headset I'm using an IN EAR set.

On the other side, the hole process of ordering and delivery is IMPECCABLE. Thank you very much, I will continue ordering from you.

Nice but untrained

Daniel155, 15.01.2011
So it is nice to look at the instrument, especially if you have long wanted an E-cello. At first glance beautifully processed. The accessories are rich - the headphones and the jack cable fulfill their purpose; The colophony unusable, a block battery and a bow, which I myself did not even so grottig. Do not forget the case with stacks for notes, bow and trash.

The cello itself however faded more and more in unplayability and in the question whether a cellist was involved in the development of the instrument at all. I have also studied my intrument, so I take the time to know what I'm talking about.

Before you can put the E-Cello on the chest, you have to fold out a box. It is fastened with a hinge, as you can see from the doors of our wardrobe. Looks really out of the way, but good, just the back. However, with me from the beginning seemed to be easily damaged the hinge - it was extremely wobbly. On my chest, I immediately felt uncomfortable. Because a real cello is located somewhere else. The artificial frame simulates an arbitrary point at the back of the cello, completely insane and a proper attitude thus impossible.

Very banal before the first game: The sting must get out. But he went off something like this - as if the screw was still tight. The bridge looked quite neat to the fingerboard. Of course, the was almost out of tipping, which had to be adjusted (which one can expect from the delivery situation can not be otherwise). The tailpiece is made of metal, the fins could be oiled. The neck is stained and could be sanded down again.

The next problem that makes the cello unplayable for me is that it does not exist a box between the knees. Because the frame of the E-Cellos consists only of a ceiling, the depth of a real Cellos is missing. This means that you just pinch the blanket between the knees and the entire string is too deep - which can destroy a proper posture completely, even be harmful to your permanent practice.

Actually a pity, because the instrument died for me. I just could not keep it big because I could not hold it. The sounds that I could elicit were nevertheless promising ...


I advise against this instrument, since it is simply not a correct and thus pleasant, usual attitude is possible. For this, I simply lack the "corners and edges" of a real cello.
