Robust Student Instrument

This student cello is a sturdy and reliable instrument for beginners and younger musicians. The body is made from a varnished laminate Spruce top and Basswood back and sides produce a lightweight, tough and flexible body. The inlaid purfling helps to protect against cracks forming at the edge of the instrument and allows the top to flex more freely.

The ebonized Hardwood pegs and fingerboard prevent the build-up of moisture, making the instrument long lasting. The solid Maple bridge and metal tailpiece are hard wearing and durable. Easy to use fine tuners on the tailpiece allow for simple and quick tuning.

Warm Tone

This cello produces a warm and even sound throughout the registers. The steel core strings create a clear and crisp tone, allowing the beginner to concentrate on playing technique. Each string has silk wrappings to help students identify the notes and to create friction against the tuning pegs.

1/4 Size Cello

The student cello, bow and case have been scaled down to meet the needs of the younger beginner. The 1/4 size instrument is ideal for a player whose height is roughly 4ft (122cm), or for children between 5 and 7 years old.

Includes Bow, Rosin and Case

The cello comes with everything the beginner needs to get playing straight away. The bow made from Brazilwood and synthetic hair is easy to use and robust, meaning it will withstand the stresses of students learning proper bowing techniques. A half mounted frog and ebony adjuster make it easy to learn with as well as comfortable to hold.

The canvas covered, hard foam case is easy to carry around as well as protective for the instrument. Wheels on the bottom mean it can be rolled around and shoulder straps mean it can be put on your back with ease. Pockets both inside and out make it easy to store the included rosin as well as any other accessories.

Complete Pack

If you're just starting out or are simply looking for a more complete set-up, you may be interested in the Gear4music 1/4 Cello Beginner Pack, which comes with a number of additional extras including music stand, spare strings and cleaning kit.
