Brands of Cello’s we have available in-store
The cello or violincello is a bowed (and occasionally plucked) instrument of the string family. Its four strings are usually tuned in perfect fifths: from low to high, C2, G2, D3 and A3, an octave lower than the viola. Music for the cello is generally written in the bass clef, with tenor clef and treble clef used for higher-range passages. The cello has an end pin that rests on the floor to support the instrument’s weight. The cellist will be seated when playing the instrument, unlike the violin and viola that will be held on the shoulder. The cellist leans the instrument against their body, turned slightly inward to put the strings comfortably in reach.
Acoustic Pickups are made to amplify acoustic instruments. There’s a variety on the market, but we will look at the Realist Transducer, copper element, 1/4″ input, strap-on jack.
Very transparent sound colour and texture with unmatched dynamic response both arco and pizzicato. Will sound more like the instrument it’s amplifying than any other pickup on the market. No need to re-attenuate amp settings between arco and pizz.
Simple installation. No change to the instrument required.
An electric Cello unlike an acoustic cello requires an amplifier or headphones to produce sound. This makes an electric cello perfect for tight living spaces and low noise requirements. Electric cello’s can be used on stage with loop and effects pedals.
