I was wondering? Does anyone know if you can change the color of you cello without buying/getting a new one?

You can have it painted, but if yorue reffering to actual wood colour, as in tan, brown or that bright orange colour... im not entirely sure, but it may be possible to have it dyed to a darker shade, dont think you can go lighter though...

Well, you can change the color of most anything with paint or stain. But regular paints can be less flexable than you would want although the looks would be beautiful the sound of the instrument would probably be less than what you are used to at the present time.
You can probably go to a darker stain but the varnish finish would have to be stripped off first and the stain applied then the varnish would have to be re applied. This should be done by a professional or someone experienced at this sort of thing. There are stains with many colors that are available and are beautiful but yours is already stained some color and I don't believe the stain can be removed completely.

Dont you dare paint your cello. the paint will peel later and the resonance and warmth will go out the window

You cant re varnish either, so dont stain it.

i don't think painting or staining your own cello is a very good idea.
i have seen one u can buy that has a metalic blue background with an underwater theme and fish on it.
i've also seen a blue violin. and a purple violin.
me and my mates want to breed purple violins. we're gonna grow our own purple violin tree. lol

When you get better, you should get an electric cello- then you could have it any color or shape you want.

On ebay.co.uk, a search for "purple turtle cello" returns listings from a seller who sells them in blue, pink purple etc etc
These are new and factory (or maybe hand) made, in colour already.

I have no idea what they sound like.
