I personally do not know if you have ever heard the crazy cool sound of the Czech cello resonating throughout the sound of a beautiful Gregorian style catholic church, but if you haven?t and you or your child want to learn how to play the cello and don?t know which type to choose from then this review will help you in your decision. I would recommend a cello made in the Czech-Republic to any new or experienced cellist based on a review of its key elements. These elements being; the type of wood used for the body, the quality of the bow, and hair on the bow.
If the sound of the cello doesn?t grab your attention, the wood and sheer craftsmanship of the body definitely will. When I bought my cello, I thought long and hard about what type of wood I wanted the body to be made out of because that is a very important factor when purchasing any string instrument. The type of wood I chose for my cello is mahogany. Not only is mahogany, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful types of wood to buy, but it is also the most durable and last the longest. I needed a wood that would be able to withstand someone accidently bumping into it while it was at rest, or even if I bumped into a wall while carrying it. Another benefitting factor in purchasing this type of wood is the sound that comes out of the cello. Since mahogany is a thicker, more durable wood what resonates from the cello has a more powerful and full voice to it. The only downfall of the mahogany wood is the price, which is fairly high. My cello was around five thousand dollars which was mainly because of the mahogany.
The body of the cello may help create the great sound of my cello but it wouldn?t be able to make loud or elongated notes without a bow. What most people do not understand about the bow of the cello is that the type of material that the bow is made out of actually influences the type of sound that is produced. The bow that I chose and highly recommend is made of fiber glass. I give it such great praise because of two reasons, one of those reasons being that fiber glass bows are very affordable, the other because it is very light weight compared to other bows. For me the weight is a big factor because I don?t want to have to drag a heavy bow back and forth across four strings, so the light weight makes it less tiring on the arm and wrist.
Of course you cannot have a bow without hair or else it wouldn?t be able to make the strings vibrate to make the sound. The hair of the bow is not really a giant factor when it comes to how well you want the cello to sound but when I chose the hair for my bow I chose synthetic hair. I did this for a couple of reasons. One of the main reasons I chose this is because it is very affordable as far as the bow goes. Another reason is because the synthetic hair holds rosin for a longer time period then say horse hair makes for longer playing time and less time spent rosining the bow. I highly recommend synthetic hair over any other type of hair.
The overall aspects of the type of cello I have describe make for a great cello for any cellist whether it be for a beginner or a professional. Based on the type of wood used, the quality of the bow and the bow hair this review will give you a good idea of what experience I have had with this cello. I don?t have any negatives regarding the cello itself, except for the price which is a little expensive but if you have the assets to purchase one, I highly recommend it.
