How to choose Cello size:
Measuring yourself or a child for cello size: Seat the child (or yourself) so that the knees are bent at a ninety degree angle. The instrument should rest such that the upper rim of the cello body rests on the sternum (breast bone), and the left knee contacts the curve below the lower bout corner. The C string peg (for the thickest string) should be near the left ear, with the neck a few inches away from the shoulder, and the left hand able to reach both ends of the fingerboard with ease.
Hand size is also the primary consideration when determining the proper size to purchase. Too large an instrument can throw your balance off and/or induce tension in the left hand. If the choice between two sizes of instrument is close choose the smaller. Refer to our recommended ages and sizes on the right.
Please keep in mind that this is a rough scale, and may not necessarily work for your child. Also, don't forget to consider your child's growth pattern, which might be an important factor!

Admittedly, I was nervous purchasing an instrument online, but this product has far exceeded my expectations. It looks and sounds beautiful!
Well, I didn't really expect it to be damaged on arrival. The first one's neck was completely snapped just above the body as soon as I unpacked it, and the rivet in the stand's hinge was broken. The box it was in had no obvious major damage, so this was either due to improper packing (and some kind of unbalanced weight being applied during shipping), or it was like that when shipped. Amazon is processing the return for that item now.
Second try: better, and I ended up keeping it, BUT the fingerboard was completely detached from the neck. It was obviously glued at some point, but either with not enough glue, or something had forced the fingerboard to snap off. Fortunately neither the cello itself or the fingerboard were damaged, so it only took a few drops of inexpensive hide glue to make my own amateur repair.
The strings, as has been mentioned, are not the best quality, and I may replace them soon, but I am able to tune the instrument (which can be tough to do on any inexpensive instrument), and for a cheap student cello, I think it sounds quite nice.
If you're considering buying this, know what to expect: it may take a few returns to get a working instrument, and even then it may not arrive in perfect condition. If all you need is a "beater" instrument and you're willing to put up with a little hassle to get it, this is at least an inexpensive option.
To sell something like this is unethical. I've wasted enormous amounts of time attempting to tune it, taking it to a music store, and what will be two visits to the UPS store. I'm dismayed Amazon would sell a product such as this that simply does not do what it's supposed to.
DO NOT BUY THIS INSTRUMENT. IT IS A WASTE OF YOUR TIME AND YOUR MONEY.
