Selected User Reviews For Cecilio 4/4 CECO-1WH Pearl White Electric Cello with Ebony Fittings in Style 1 (Full Size)
I am learning how to play the cello for the first time. The beautiful sound of the cello always fascinated me. I have played guitar most of my life, but I have always admired the cello for its beauty and deep tone. There have been many different ones that I have researched. As a beginner, I didn't want to spend the money on a Yamaha despite the fact that I knew there was nothing else that could There have been a lot of bad reviews on this particular cello, however all outside of amazons reviews rank it very highly. In other words. It's time to get started. I've got up to this point. I am* *br* The package arrived before the expected date*- I found the packaging to be very good, and there was not a single flaw to be seen. It had been reported many times it arrived broken (I read many reviews that said so)
- This is a beautiful Photographs taken on the Internet do not capture the true face of it. *br/ There is no noticeable degradation in sound quality. As of now, no issues have been encountered. I will provide an update within a couple of Although I plan to upgrade strings and bow in the future, the current bow and strings are perfectly adequate to get a hang of the instrument in its initial stages. This instrument really caught my attention, and I am glad I gave it a try.
I wanted to buy a cheap cello and I knew Cecilio Electric Cello was a good option. This is fine with me as I am not a professional and when I wanted to experiment, I just tinkered. There's a chance I'll be able to afford a better guitar someday. I bought the Pearl White model, which arrived in excellent shape. Despite its low price, the model didn't seem cheap to me. I was able to see wood grain through the upper part of the cello neck after only playing for 1 hour, as the white paint had rubbed off on my hand and the upper part of the cello neck was translucent. It is likely that the same will happen to the black fret board, but so far it seems to be holding up well. This was an easy string to string In my search for a video showing how to string a cello properly, I found one that was very useful. This made tuning the cello much easier as I clipped a Kliq Ubertuner directly to the bridge (under the strings with plenty of clearance). It has been my experience that once the cello is perfectly in tune, it stays that way for only a short time. My instrument seems to require me to go through quite a bit of stuff each time I pick it up A good tune will go a long way. Since I have a guitar, banjo, and violin, I am used to always re-tuning them for my music This Cecilio sounds like it has a tendency to lose its tune more often. This cello is doing what I ever wanted it to do for me, and I am happy with it. During the purchase of my cello, I ordered a bow and a set of strings separately. My two bows are different, and I am able to tell the difference between them, but I think the one that comes with the cello is not Despite the fact that they are cheap, the headphones work for me so for now, I am ok. This review received 4 stars because after reading some of the other reviews before I bought that described the poor quality of the product, I was actually delighted with the product I received. Also, I think the fact that it arrived in two days after I ordered it via Amazon Prime impressed me.
A damage-free shipping box was present for this product, but the product arrived in a very poor This is why we purchased it Having played with an orchestra for many years, my wife has always wanted to try playing on In the end, she opted for a lesser priced one (if you call it The cello I gave my wife was going to be able to be plugged into my guitar distortion (which is a nice feature) and to see what she could achieve with the instrument.
The Arrival. . . she was excited, but she wasn't able to sustain it. I'll start by saying that this product arrived in an undamaged box on time, as mentioned previously. We were especially impressed with how well he packaged the product. when we carefully removed it from its soft case, we found many issues.
1) There was wood putty crust on the back that seemed to grow on its own. A thin sheet of leather-like material was found between the instrument's head and neck, suggesting it may have been repaired at some point. There is something wrong with this wood If you are using plaster or putty In random chunks, the material flakes off and looks as if it may have been used in a previous repair, but we are not certain of the source. We can only say that my wife plays cello professionally and she has no idea how to play it. . . which isn't good. f) The neck of the instrument was missing white paint all down the back neck, which was not the case on the models that friends who owned the instrument received. Although it is possible that this changed over time since there is no paint in the product photos, it seems odd that this changed unless the paint is cheap and/or of lesser quality and the company didn't want new reviews about colors rubbing off on the hands of players. Later, we will discuss how the scuffs on the door panel might be the result of a cheaper paint job. To be honest, I don't see any significance to it. The only time they are worth mentioning is if you would like or expect a neck painted entirely. In spite of this, the necks were not painted in the picture, so feel free to interpret it as you wish. Three) The black fretboard paint was scuffed at the head of the instrument, right where the white paint had been removed. Scuffing before packaging and shipping cannot be given any other explanation than the fact that they scuffed it. 4) This instrument had white paint on its body, but the white painted surface was badly scratched. Throughout this instrument are a number of scuffs. They have been coarsely scuffed in places. As well, it does not appear to have happened during shipping, based on how well it was packed. 5) The entire instrument was covered with wood dust and/or other forms of "dust" and was very bad looking. Honestly, I cannot describe the look on my wife's face when she first unzipped the cello from its soft case. As her hands were full of dust, she cringed and raised them to show how much was on them. You can see it well in the photo we took of it's head between the tuning keys. It was literally covered in this strange dust. In order to clean all of the other photos, we tried to wipe off the rest of the dust. **6) CRIKS! The instrument exhibited multiple cracks, which is unacceptable for an instrument that is supposed to be 'new' and expensive. I have no doubt it was well packaged since it was such a nice package. There should never be a cracked product on the market. 7) It is not I found this not to be a problem Although my wife admitted that she thought it would come assembled after watching the video on the product page when it stated that all the cellos were tested before shipment. The bridge/etc may be affected by this, since they test them and then break them down again, which could potentially pose a threat to the structure. The best deal, however, can be found on What can you expect from the cello? We will attach photos if we are able to, of each issue we discussed. There is no white paint on the wall Another thought is that they stopped painting the backs of the necks due to some reasoning. In contrast, their fellow musicians with the same model cello received theirs with white paint on the back of the neck. This makes me wonder what happened to this There is no convincing answer other than that currently there may be less expensive paint utilized. . . which is disappointing, as well. * * *Conclusion In an attempt to convince my wife to play an electric cello, I offered to purchase one for her, but we soon found out that not all instruments are There will be a new cello on its way soon, so an updated review will be placed upon receipt of that new instrument. Having said that, I find the "current" product to be a terrible one. When a product is shipped with cracks, numerous scuffs, and covered in dust, we give it a This review is provided in the hope that it will be useful.
An overview of the situation. While I have played the violin for more than 30 years, I have never played the Since this is all new to me, I can't come into the discussion with any type of For a couple of weeks now, I have been learning/playing this, and so far I have been very pleased with it. Some have suggested replacement of the strings, and I did so. Constructed with quality materials, the construction has a terrific look. The fine tuners are the only thing I dislike about the construction. One or two of them were a bit tight and a bit painful to adjust. A little oil eased that up. Seeing as how the electronics seem to work well, I'm not concerned. It does not seem to be of the greatest quality, but if I play it through my low end amp, it sounds awesome. Sincerely, I tend to play with no sound most of the time because it causes less disturbance at home. All in all, I would purchase again and have learned a lot from it.
