I would certainly never buy this or recommend it to anyone.

The tuning pegs need to be jammed in very tight to make sure they don't slip.

I bought this cello about 18 months ago. I've been a musician for over 20 years, but this is my first cello. Since I didn't know if the instrument would be right for me I decided to go inexpensive. The fact that it came with a second set of strings, "hard" foam case, soft case, stand, rosin and a bow, I thought this was quite a steal.

You get what you pay for, it's true. This is no orchestra instrument by any means. But for a beginner it is a heck of a deal. If mine broke I'd either buy this one again or one of the step up models (CCO-400 or 500 series) as I probably wouldn't allow myself to spend over 1k on any other student model, at least until I'm only using it for studying and doing some home recording.

Overall we are happy with this cello but, it is not without a few problems that had to be corrected right out of the box - before it could be played.

Got this for Christmas 2010 for our daughter who is in her third year of orchestra. It arrived quickly and without damage; all the required parts were included (hard & soft cases, extra strings, rosen, stand, etc). Once opened we found that the bridge was not the correct one for this particular cello model; it was too short and allowed the strings to rest on areas that they shouldn't. It did not lift the strings high enough that they could be plucked. (I am not a cello expert so please forgive the lack of technical terms.) She took it to her teacher and he recommended a local lady that he knows to make repairs/adjustments. We took it to this great little old lady; she told us the Cecilio brand is relatively new and sometimes their quality control isn't what it should be. But, she said overall they are good for beginners/intermediate without having to spend a bunch of money. Then she fixed it right up. She made a completely new bridge and adjusted the tone-bar. She deepened the grooves where the stings lay and lubed all the areas that need it. And she only charged us $54.00! I figure the total cost of buying and fixing is reasonable since our daughter is very, very happy with it now that she can play it.

In defense of the manufacturer and seller: we never went to them to issue a claim/complaint. Since we had waited past the typical Amazon 30 day time-limit for musical instruments I just didn't feel like messing with it. The seller may very well have made an appropriate adjustment had we asked them to. Beside, if we had said something to them we might never have met the repair lady; and that was worth it! She was just fantastic.

Just know that if you order this cello it may not be ready to play right out of the box and that might be a deal breaker for some.

First, I've read a number of reviews critical of some aspect of this cello which, in my research, turn out to be issues you'd also run into with cellos costing 2-3 times as much. Yes, the pegs will slip, which is why you will want to buy peg drops. More on this later. Next, the bridge you get may be slightly too large, and you'll either have to hunt for a true 3/4 bridge to match your 3/4 cello, or buy a different one for about $30, or just settle with things being slightly off. (Mine turned out to be the right size, so don't ask me for advice.) And the sound is not going to be perfect because (a) you've got low-cost strings, (b) low cost rosin and (c) the pegs keep slipping because you didn't buy peg drops.

Let's remember that you're paying a few hundred bucks for a cello; an instrument which has traditionally cost several hundred to a few thousand dollars. You're getting a ton of free stuff with it too. Everything your little future orchestra member needs to get started is included, and if it turns out that he or she doesn't have an aptitude for sawing on a cello and playing it hot, then this thing will look very nice sitting in a corner in your living room.

That being said, if you really want to get the best value out of this, then you will want to add Ardsley pegg drops to your order. A few carefully applied drops will keep the pegs in position in the peg box until you decide to move them. You'll also want to get a better rosin, like Jade L'Opera. The included rosin isn't bad, but a good rosin will save you some time on both initial setup and on reapplication. The stock strings aren't terrible, but you'll appreciate the tonal improvement getting a better set will provide. A decent set of D'Addario 3/4 medium tension strings will set you back between $40 and $60.

Essentially, the cello arrived with its sound post rolling around inside of it. Mkay, that's just the beginning. I pulled it out of the case and installed the bridge, normally.. You'd line it up with the sound post but that was busy rolling around inside of it so you know. I made do with what I had there. The strings were God awful, so please order an extra set of strings that aren't cheap. It was incredibly lightweight and just felt cheap even in my hands. Ya' really do get what you pay for with this thing.

Now, after I tuned it up and got that in working order, I began to play a simple C scale... The flappin' fingerboard literally slide off, taking out the bridge and onto the floor. The nut up top just tumbled right down behind it as well. I just sat there blinking and staring. I had no idea what the hell to do so I just calmly place the cello back inside of its case and took my dog for a walk.

Later, I returned and immediately began taking pictures of the box that it arrived in and then the fingerboard.. Ridiculous.. I've enclosed a handful of pictures for you guys to see.

I felt like I was taking pictures of an open faced casket that should've been close faced. Yall be careful when viewing these pictures..
