SweetApple, 26.11.2017
I ordered this cello because I can mostly practice during nighttime only.

Without the amp, it's marvelous - I can hear what I'm playing, the instrument fits me well and is very enjoyable. It can't be actually heard from a different room if the door is closed. Different story is.. when you connect it to the amp.

The problem is NOISE. I haven't used any effects on it just yet, but I think some noise reducer should do the trick.

Also, playing it with headphones sucks. If you're a beginner who doesn't know anything about active pickups, don't be surprised. You need an amp. The bow is very low quality with very bad balance, I bought a new one as soon as I could.

Overall I can say that this instrument is OK for what it is. Good for silent practice as it is even without an amp, but does require some thinking about how to use it with effect pedals to have a decent sound if you want it loud. I don't think one could ask for something better for the price.

I own 2 cellos so I'm not sad that this turned out to be not as good as I expected. In time, of course, when effect pedals will join the game, it's gonna be fun, but as I mentioned, I play mostly during nighttime and I needed something like this for years.

Actually not so bad ...

22.02.2016
unless:
- the fingerboard and the left side would have been hit hard. Since the cello was quite well packed, these damages must have been caused in the factory.

- In addition (as another customer has already noted) is on the strings any smear, which I could remove with difficulty.

- the breast support seems to be actually incorrectly mounted. This does not make sense as it is.

- The strings are absolutely inferior.

The arch, the bridge and the bridge are just as ok.

The (amplified) sound is however not so bad. If you want to have a good exercise cello have a little tinker, then it goes also.
Amazing, if you consider what you can expect for the same money with an electric bass ...
