Decent for a beginner

Marko159, 12.09.2015
This was my first electric cello (I upgraded to NS Design NXT-5 since). For a beginner it is good value for money and if you live in a flat with neighbors around you, investing in one of these might not be a bad idea in any case.

The build quality is decent for the money. Nothing stellar but in this price range it's ok. The included piezo microphone is very nasal sounding. To get a better sound out of it, I would recommend an external EQ with very deep cut at 2kHz.

In terms of playability this is very close to an acoustic cello. There is a folding chest support to give it similar playing position. Apart from the body (or lack of it), most of the parts are those found in acoustic ones as well, so you can customize it pretty easily to your liking.

Poor quality, useless strings

Colmic, 25.04.2017
Within 5 minutes of taking the cello out of the box the rear 'kitchen' hinge bent. It is not up to the strains that are placed on it. It is also fixed with 2 cheap chipboard screws at shallow depth.
I tried tuning the cello and the C string unraveled and I had to go out and buy a new string, the ones that come with the instrument are as good as a broken pencil...pointless.
But, I changed the C and the A string and achieved a satisfactory result, always bearing in mind that this is a 377 euro cello. You need to spend a bit more to get it working decently. I put on Jaegar strings and was happy enough as I am only going to keep this cello to practice occasionally on in a second home.
