Such a nice instrument for hobby or beginners
BabsMalhe, 26.02.2021
This cello is wonderful for beginners or for those like me who has music as a hobby! The sound is incredibly audible although it is an electric instrument, one can hear it in the entire house, I had do buy a mute for it hahaha
When using the amplification (either a box or a headphones) the sound is amazing! I do recommend this cello! It is also very light to carry away and to hold. I haven´t found negative points about this instrument yet.

Electric cello
Music Lover Winnie , 13.01.2021
What a beautifully made instrument. I'm in love with it.
It was easy to assemble. Packed perfectly arrived fast and safe,
not a scratch or mark on it. I have bought this Cello to teach myself
how to play it. Beautiful case and bow. Rosin and battery came
with it. I'm so pleased and look forward to learning it. I recommend highly
buying from this site. They are very helpful and fast response to any queries
you may have. I have given 5 stars for all. Thank you Thomann, I look forward
to purchasing again in the future from your site. 💯/💯 🎼🎶🎵🎻

Thanks again one very happy Customer. Happy New year to you all.

Very useful for beginners
Pastellarium, 12.01.2021
I have some musical experience on electric guitar and bass and this is my first time to start to learn cello.

PROS:
* The finishes are good. Painting is beautiful
* The bow and pitch are of good quality.
* Microfiners do the job
* Tuning remains accurate after a couple of trials
* It is very practical to carry on with you. Assembly is very easy
* The amplification is really good, the bass is preserved in good tones.

CONS:
* The big problem with this Electric Cello are the knee pads. They are uncomfortable. If you are already used to the position on an acoustic cello, I do not recommend purchasing this one. It takes a little time and patience to get into a really comfortable playing position.
* The strings are of poor quality. Even so, they maintain correct tuning
* The cello I have arrived with a slight scratch on the upper part of the body, next to the neck. Even so, it does not affect its operation.

In conclusion, it is a good instrument for what you pay. If you really want to sound like a pro, I don't recommend getting this one. It is rather to practice without disturbing your neighbors and small concerts.

A solid instrument for this price
mitrunhe, 13.05.2019
I bought this electric cello to give the cello a try without much reservations. I had played a cheap Harley Benton Stratocaster and based on this experience, I was sure that I'd get an affordable yet well-built instrument.

I wasn't disappointed. This electric cello sounds surprisingly good and is actually rather loud even when played without any amplification - to the extent that I opted to buy a mute for it in consideration of my dear neighbours. It is a solid choice for a beginner or someone (like me) who wants to try out cello without spending a fortune on it.
