Hi I have this cello I bought in 2013 for $150NZD. I think the strings are a bit too high, 8mm on the A string and 10mm on the C string, and I was thinking of getting the bridge made a bit lower, also because the bridge doesn't seem to fit the cello properly. but then I noticed the back is starting to come off and will need fixing. Does anyone know what kind of cello it is and if it would worth fixing? I know it's a cheap one, the fingerboard isn't ebony but the purfling is real. Thanks!
Hi im hoping for some help with possibly identification of my cello, its a 3/4 size old cello, im guessing about 1930 but may prove to be earlier, no label inside, purfling is real and its a spruce front with maple back and sides. Many thanks for any information.
Dear Maestros – inspired by your knowledge I’d like to post photos of my cellos. I was once told they would both be from Germany, late 1800’s, but as I have read so many interesting and detailed discussions here in the pegbox, I was hoping you’d be interested in sharing your expert opinions on their origin. To avoid mixing up the photos here’s only the first cello for now... hope this works...
I have this German made Cello but has been hard to identify for me or putting a value on it.If anyone can help it would be appreciated. Anything on the type of wood..etc. I know it's a fairly low quality instrument for beginners but nothing else Thanks in advance
