I love cello. Aside from guitar, itís the most expressive instrument to my ear. During my long guitar hiatus I purchased a used student cello(still $1300 tho ) and took lessons for 3mo. It was a beautiful thing, but ultimately the ergos of playing cello just hurt too much to pursue it.

I still keep the instrument in good working condition and draw a bow once in awhile. Speaking of bows, when I first started, a friend gifted me her 3rd backup bow as encouragement. During my first lesson my instructors eyes bugged out and she asked me where I got the bow. Itís worth in excess of $3500.

A freakin lil piece of wood with horsehair. Her THIRD backup bow. $3500

Yes, they're crazy. My son's first nice bow broke at the tip, splitting along the grain. He got a replacement, but I made a repair by gluing the split back together and pinning across the break with a thin brass rod and epoxy. You can make out the hairline where the finish was disturbed by the split. The brass rod is the little dot on top of the tip of the bow:

Have you ever considered getting an electric cello? My gf has an NS design electric cello (made by the same guy who made those headless steinberger guitars in the 80s/90s) and she loves the thing. We recently went out to a cabin near Yosemite and she brought it and we played led zeppelin covers that echoed through the canyon. It sounds great too

I had NO idea the thing was so valuable. When the sentimental value is also considered, man, if it ever became damaged due to my negligence Iíd be sick to my stomach for weeks.

Sick!

Those fret markers would have been pretty dang convenient. My funky micro-tones were annoying AF.

I’m curious though, how would an electric be any different ergo-wise than an acoustic? My left shoulder didn’t like holding my hand up near my left ear for hours. And my right tricep/rear deltoid started showing odd muscle development from all the bowing.

I’ve been a regular gym goer for 35yrs and I look the part. It may just be vanity, or an overdriven sense of aesthetics because it’s my body, but asymmetric tricep development is a hard no.

Edit...she plays standing up? Or she’s 6’8”?

Haha she plays standing up. That's why I suggested it because when she plays her electric cello, her arms seem to be in a more natural position rather than having her left arm like a t rex while sitting down playing her big ass acoustic. Also, the smaller body allows for her to rotate het body more towards the instrument, taking pressure off the shoulders from being in a weird position for long periods of time

Hmmmm...I can get into one for less than a good Indo semi-hollow.

What does she run it through? Something flat response so it doesnít color the sound?

Can't speak for her, but violinist Jerry Goodman (Mahavishnu Orchestra, Dixie Dregs) used to run a Mesa Tri-Axis into a Simul-2:90. His rig had some light distortion, which enriched the violin harmonics.
