Overview

This laminated maple top cello is an excellent starter or step up for the advancing student. It is ruggedly constructed to endure the rigors of student treatment, but also beautiful enough to inspire pride of ownership with its warm brown finish. A solid maple neck with oiled finish is just one example of its excellent overall build quality.

It ships with good quality steel core strings and comes with a standard gig bag and a brazilwood French bow. Like all Bellafina instruments, it is set up in the USA to MENC specifications, which means as soon as it is tuned to pitch, your instrument will sound great and play beautifully. Choose sizes.

Nice but bridge isn't set up

    Comments about Etude Student Series Cello Outfit:

    The description states, "it is set up in the USA to MENC specifications, which means as soon as it is tuned to pitch, your instrument will sound great and play beautifully." This makes it sound as if it is pretty much ready to go. This was a gift so I found this to be disapointing. It took a lot of YouTube and some prior knowledge of instruments to get this cello ready to play. Be aware of the set up time and effort before purchase.

      Comments about Etude Student Series Cello Outfit:

      I gave this cello as a gift. The description says, "It is set up in the USA to MENC specifications, which means as soon as it is tuned to pitch, your instrument will sound great and play beautifully." That makes it sound as if it is ready to go. The bridge was not set up and if it weren't for YouTube and prior experience with other string instruments, it probably would have been quite an issue. Please be aware of this when deciding whether to purchase this instrument.

          Comments about Etude Student Series Cello Outfit:

          Cello purchased was 4/4; bridge that came with it was 3/4. WWBW sent an uncut 4/4 briged as replacement; would have costs $100.00 to have it shape. These are assembly line instruments; they needed to send a precut bridge, then I could have had it fit for $30.00. They did send a return shipping label to send the instrument back.

          You Get What You Pay For

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Etude Student Series Cello Outfit:

          This is definitely a lower end instrument. It does not come ready to play out of the box. We had to take it to a local music shop to have it set up, sound post, bridge..... It cost about $60. I emailed and called customer service and they gave me a discount to cover the cost! The second or third time my daughter used her bow it snapped. Luckily we purchased the repair coverage. We got a replacement bow after a few weeks and it was the wrong size. 2 stings broke after a few weeks (the gentleman in the music shop had pointed out that they were 'unwinding' when he set it up). They did mail out 2 new strings. The customer service has been good, but every time something goes wrong it just takes time to get it sorted.

          In the long run, it will be less expensive than renting a cello for my beginner 4th grader taking lessons at school, but I wish we had spent a bit more and gotten a better instrument. She will outgrow it by next year and we will definitely look into a different brand and better quality instrument.

            • For Orchestra

            Comments about Etude Student Series Cello Outfit:

            Bought the etude half cello for daughters orchestra. We are a family of musicians and have dozens of instruments; not all are super expensive. All are very well taken care of. The cello was good for about a day. Bridge needed to be glued, the local music store has fixed it twice.
            They had to sand it due to noise vibrations. The bag is unraveling and rosin and rock stop fell out.
            Unfortunately we purchased it over a month before we started using it and the 45 day return date has passed.
            Junk
