Hi cellists! I'm a flutist by nature, but as a requirement for my degree, I must learn (at least to some basic level) to play 'cello. Problem is, I was given a university-owned 'cello to learn on, and one of the strings is missing. I've discussed this with the instrument manager, and apparently it's my responsibility to restring it (don't ask me why!), but unfortunately, I haven't the slightest clue how to go about that. I've restrung my guitar a fair few times, but never really touched a 'cello until about 3 days ago. Anyway, my question is this:
Is this something I should attempt myself? And if so, can someone please suggest a good brand of string to use, and explain how to put it on? I'm grateful for any help you can provide!
