  1. Normally we have a conflict between best for left hand fingers and best for bow. The bow needs a certain free area left and right of the string. That's why we make round bridges and not flat ones. The very frequent reality is that the bridge is a lot rounder than (the end of) the fingerboard. That's why we often have an action (string distance to fingerboard) a bit higher in the middle strings. Let's not forget that the deepest string needs a lot more action. So, leaving this side on the bridge (C string) higher, we have to lift the whole thing, the A string being the fix point, with the lowest action (4-6mm, I am more at the 4mm side). Now, with a fifth string, we have all this a bit more. A lot higher deep F string, and too high strings in the middle strings. I'm thinking about a kind of Romberg idea, taking away fingerboard mass at F (and? C?), Leaving the radius smaller. Experiences? How do Double bass guys solve it (when they add a fifth string)?
  2. Hi All, In my cello build I have come upon the idea of perhaps making this first cello a 5 string variety. Not set in stone yet. I still am recovering from my back plates separating while carving on the outer arching. Since my bout width's will be a little larger than I originally intended. Don't ask me how it got away from me. Nevertheless I have been fascinated with the idea of making this a 5 string version for my own use. I am *horrible* at reading the treble clef which a 5th string would help with. Plus I love the Bach Cello Suites and Suite #6 which is intended to be played on a 5 string instrument... Roger Hargrave made a really lovely 5 string cello for Mathias Michael Bechman. http://www.matthias-...m/the-5-string/ Here is avery nice video of that cello being played and an interview with Mathias and Roger. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45OT_0eN1Ss Do you suppose the basic specifications for this cello or a similar one might be available? I searched quite a bit and not much to go on from the Web or Maestronet. There was on article back in 2003 or 2004 but all the links to images have ceased working. I'm not going to be able to or even have any intent on copying one on this build, since my cello body is already defined. I just want to explore the possibility. Mostly what I have left to define is the neck and fingerboard which probably needs the most consideration for an additional string. F-hole width as well... If anyone has any relevant cello dimensions or photos they would care to share, it would be most appreciated! Thanks, Joe
  3. Hello. Sorry for my English. I live in Minsk, Belarus. I repair guitars and made few for myself. Rock vocalist and guitarist too:) After watching videos of 2Cellos I started to like cello. My elder son started to learn play cello in music school. I was repaired your 1/4 cello (moscow factory cello). And now I think to make new cello for him. I think 5 strings cello will more interesting. Not so easy to find good tonewood in Belarus. I planning to use simple wood (plain maple). Also think to make not full classic cello But with some modern feature.
