Great instrument.

I've played the violin for several years and got this cello mostly for my girlfriend.
It's a wonderful instrument, and as a pleasant surprise, I had no problems with the bridge.

It's obviously not a high end cello for professionals, but for a beginner it has all you need. Including the 4 fine-tuners, who have proven most useful.

Delivery took about 7 work days to Sweden, a little longer than smaller packages, but nothing i would like to complain about. The package was completely intact and of course so was the cello.

The only thing I can complain about is the case. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, but it's a soft case. For beginners, i think a hard case is better, because they're not used to be as careful with the instrument as you might have to be.

Overall, I'm extremely happy with the purchase. I've purchased violins before from other stores and I have been very disappointed with them, so I was quite nervous about this. But thomann did a great job! I recommend it for any beginner and like me, composer who wants to explore a new instrument!

Great Cello
Anonymous 08.12.2016
I bought this cello a couple years back. Still in great shape. The sound for the price is excellent, that is of course if you like your cello to sound a bit on the darker side. I love it.

Out of the box it maybe lacks a bit of low end but this can be easily fixed by different strings or a different bridge.
On very cheap cellos you may often find the sound post (inside the cello) to be placed badly (too far to the back, side etc..) But this one had it at the perfect spot, no need for adjustments. And the fine tuners on the tailpiece are a lifesaver for beginners, without them its a pain to tune the strings.

The only drawbacks of this instrument is that i think the fingerboard is painted. After playing for some time my fingers turn a bit blackish.
And of course the bow. It's not bad but I really didn't like it. The response with the strings was too low.
I'd suggest investing in a better bow since the difference will be astronomical.

All in all it's a great cello.

i thought the cello was very good value for the price. An excellent starter instrument which i bought for a present for my sister in law. I will probably buy one now for myself. That surely shows that I was satisfied with my purchase. Delivery was prompt. I played the cello for a few days before presenting it to my sister in law for her birthday. The bow took a bit of getting used to, but I have no complaints about it.

I have just taken delivery of Cello set . It arrived to the UK in perfect condition, considering the price, it is excellent value for the money. It looks good on the stand. The tone is much better than expected. Thank you Thomann.
