My cello is factory made, but its extremely well done and I was told by many that it is good enough for a professional cellist to use in an orchestra. Including the bow, and case etc. it costed roughly about £1000
I`m thinking about picking up the cello again. I played years ago in middle school. My budget is tight, but I don`t want to get a POS cello. Is there a good middle ground price so that it`s not breaking me but it`s not a waste?
My cello is apparently VERY good. It cost me NZ$3,000 and the bow was NZ$600. If you live in NZ the best place to get cellos (or any stringed instruments) in at Antonio Strings in ChCh. They inport them from all over the world. However if you are looking for something cheaper, u can buy a reasonable cello for NZ$800. I suggest that you take it to someone who knows what they are doing before buying and get them to assess any repairs that might be needed (they can amount up) and also to consider the sound quality of the instrument
if you near shreveport, louisisana or dallas there is a shop called Cadenza violins they have amazing instruments for prices that r so low there cellos range from 1000 to over 10,000 but i had one for 3800 and it sounds like it cost 8000 but now i have and 8 thosand it`s unbelievable and there not abnoxioous sound that comes right off the string they have a full sound that comes out from inside the cello
I come from South Africa and it`s seriously difficult to find cellos here.. and an `alrgiht` cello will cost at least (converted) $2000 and the better ones go higher than $10 000. So I was wondering if anyone knew if there was any places in South Africa where you could buy cellos for cheaper places?
You can mail order from there, or visit the shop directly if you are near Schenectady, New York. That`s where I got my Scott Cao cello 3 years ago. Ellen, the proprietor, is very knowledgeable and helpful. The shop carries a variety of cellos, in many price ranges.
i am in love with my cello and have been playing the cello for at least 7 straight years and have never thought once about quitting. i think anyone who plays the cello should be greatfull that you have a talent that can take you somewhere in life.
