I received my Cecilio CCo-600 outfit on Feb 02, 2010. The Cello is slightly darker than the picture that is shown, but I like the darker look anyways. It's a really beautiful cello. Everything that is advertised in the picture is what you actually get. Wow! Great value for your money! The Strings that come with it are cheap, so buy better quality strings. I'm purchasing a set of "Pirastro OBligato", they are a bit expensive but will give the cello a warmer rich sound. I'm taking it to a Luthier for some minor adjustments, sound post, new strings, bridge mount. Certainly needed due to shipping to Canada. I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend this purchase to anyone. It's a great first Cello, for the beginner and intermiate player.

Great cello for the price. Needs to be setup upon arrival. (comes with the bridge tied to the underside of the fingerboard and foam packed under the tailpiece.) If you don't know how to set a bridge, take it to a professional and pay for any adjustments, like lowering the action (if necessary) and changing the strings. The strings that come with it are metal and don't really do this instrument justice. (I would prefer rope core or silver on gut. ) But it has tuners and metal strings are easier for students to adjust with tuners. The finish looks darker than in the picture and my cello had a fresh ding in the bottom left front edge from rough handling in shipping, but it isn't anything that affects the sound so I'm not complaining. Great projection and wonderful tone. I think it actually sounds better than the German-made instrument I owned in college that I paid $2000 for in 1976. The bow is comfortable and light with good full hair that accepts rosin well. It would certainly serve any adult beginner or high school through college player well.

My luthier was not happy when I told him I had purchased an internet cello. After he looked at it, though, he decided that it was a nice "step up" instrument--meaning something that was better than the rental cello I had. I compared this with other fully carved instruments available on the market and decided this was the best deal. It cost more than I wanted to spend, but I was also set on getting a hard case. I couldn't find another fully carved cello with a hard case (and all the other accessories) for the price. The instrument arrived playable (after putting on the strings). I emphasize playable, certainly not the "ideal" setup for me. The first thing I did was change the strings to a better quality. At that point I could have left it and it would have been fine--sounded great--but I put a few hundred dollars into it to change the nut height, shave down the bridge, change the tailpiece to a lighter tailpiece, etc. Now it sounds even better--the string height is the way I want it, etc. As it is setup now, my luthier estimates I could sell just the cello for about $1800. Overall I am very happy with the purchase.

I was VERY leery of buying an instrument sight unseen off the internet, but because of the price, I had to give it a try. I contacted Cecilio Musical Instruments directly, asking many question about quality, QA processes and customer satisfaction. I could not find many reviews on line about this instrument except one who said it was more than he expected. He was right. I received this cello and immediately took it to a local luthier who set the cello up and made a thorough inspection. He was very impressed to the workmanship and overall quality. To quote him, You got a steal here! He mentioned that it was indeed a handmade instrument and appeared to him that it was made by one person, not an assembly line. He said that this will last a person a lifetime. The tone is incredible, deep and rich and it holds a sustained note for up to 10 seconds. This is comparable to another brand sold locally where they are asking $4000 for it. As far as Im concerned, I just saved $3000! If you are need of a beautiful, rich sounding cello, then you wont go wrong by buying the Cecilio CCO-600.
