Cheap, cheerful and Cello like!

I've been wanting to take up Cello for quite some time but have never had the space or capital to actually make a purchase. I decided to take the plunge and go for the HB e-Cello (in white).

It arrived promptly, packaged well with plenty of bubble wrap. I was slightly nervous when unboxing. It comes in a disassembled state, strings are attached but loose and under the fingerboard. The thigh/back rests come in a pocket on the front of the "gig bag". Removing the headstock (box?) was a little tricky with the shape. The bag itself is a bit flimsy (I've got another case coming which'll mean I won't need to disassemble every time I want to travel with it).

Setup is straight forwards, couple of screw pins keep the rests in place, strings are easy to tune/fine tune and tuning pegs stay put. Comes with a bow but no rosin.

The onboard preamp appears to be decent enough, I was expecting issues with this but as far as I can tell there's no unwanted hisses or additional noise. There's an aux input for silent practice and a 1/4" jack headphone/amp output with a switch to go between the two (db cut). Also slide EQ/Volume which appears to be quite responsive.

So far I've been able to make some very cello like noises!

Overall I'm very impressed with it and would recommend to a beginner looking to pick up Cello for a fantastic price point.

Parfait pour s'entraîner mais instable
Laurent_v 20.03.2020
Il est arrivé ce beau violoncelle électrique avec sa housse de qualité et son archet. Mais... ni manuel, ni la moindre idée pour fixer le chevalet. Même pas une bête feuille A4.

Il a fallu chercher soi-même, bien se creuser les méninges et essayer également de comprendre comment fixer les supports en plastique.
Sauf que ces "excroissances" là c'est très insuffisant pour bien caler le violon contre soi. Il faut le tenir un peu en biais entre genou et mollets pour que ça tienne enfin. Le plastique de plus est trop mou, et le violoncelle a vite fait de sautiller entre vos jambes.

Le son est convaincant mais la différence du "rendu sonore" entre les différentes cordes fait qu'on a tendance à privilégier une seule corde pour les parties en legato quitte à bouger beaucoup avec sa main gauche. Ce qui n'est pas souhaitable.

On aurait donc aimé un instrument un peu plus harmonieux, mieux calé contre soi et surtout quelques explications.

Me gustó mucho el violonchelo en apariencia. de los profesionales Precioso diseño, bonito color y buen sonido. incluso con cuerdas baratas suena hermoso (tengo un amigo que es violonchelista profesional y aprecia la calidad del instrumento). de los contras reposapiés muy incómodos, es inconveniente sujetar el violonchelo con los pies, las "alas" deben estar ligeramente detrás del instrumento, de lo contrario, también se vuelve incómodo sentarse y dirigir con un arco. Además, el conector para auriculares tampoco funciona. los auriculares solo se pueden encender a través del adaptador jack
