Good Quality Practice and Travel Cello


This is a real instrument and it feels like one when you play it. There are a few quibbles: A couple of fittings are uncomfortable, e.g., the left knee support and the metal fitting that simulates the back of the cello. Also, my tuners do have a problem with slipping, although I haven't tried to tighten them and I probably should. It's easy to travel with; it goes in the overhead bin. So if you have to travel and still have an instrument to practice on, this is a good solution.

Best silent cello to choose at an acceptable price


I choose this silent cello because I live with several roommates and I'm living away from school, away from practice rooms. Practicing at home makes me feel more comfortable and I tend to practice much more hours than I practice at school. This silent cello made it. I can practice at night in my room, and people standing in the living room can hardly hear it even at small hours. I can plug in the headphones to hear it more clearly and add reverb to it to make it sound like I'm playing in a performance center. It effectively balanced the left and right pans, which makes me feel that I'm worried about if I'm actually making a loud sound when I'm wearing headphones. At beginning, I took off the headphones constantly to check if I'm really making a loud sound, but actually it was just from the headphones that makes me feel like playing an acoustic cello. Also, I can practice without headphones. You can hear the pitch as well. So if I feel wearing headphones hurts after a long while, I can take off the headphones and practice without headphones. My teacher is a professional musician, he sees this cello as a great choice for traveling cellist or performing on public places. It works not only with classical music, but also contemporary music. It's perfect, with an acceptable price. One thing I really like is the tuning knobs. They're made like guitar knobs, makes it really easy for tuning compared with acoustic cello. For me, as a female, I always find it hard to tune the cello. But I don't worry about this one. The strings are of good quality, never afraid of breaking the strings while tuning. With around 1000-2000 dollars, you may not find a professional acoustic cello, but you can enjoy a wonderful silent cello. You can play with it from beginner to professional musicians. I have two bad experience about buying a cheap silent cello before this one, around 400 dollars. And I swear I will never do that again. This one really worth every dollar I spent on it. I'm just an international student majored in piano and trying to learn cello as well. I'm picky about instrument, about their sound, brand, appearance, price, etc. for this one, I have to say I did not find any drawbacks so far. It's easy to set up as well. Just remember to buy a bow and rosin because they are not included in the bag with the silent cello. Yamaha is always a great choice. Just don't waste your money and time on cheap and weak cellos, this one should be your best choice.
