I love this link:

I still love my violin and viola, also.

They call me, “Mellow Cello”

All great reasons!

My #1 reason is #1 on their list.  You know that full, warm feeling and sound you hear when an orchestra plays?  That primarily comes from the cello.  Because of its range, as well as the tone the cello produces, it fills the orchestra and provides a rich overall sound.  You have to have cellos in the orchestra, or the strings will simply sound like a violin chamber.

This article is still in my favorites, being a long time bassist, I took to the Cello very naturally, best move I ever made! The Viola and Violin on the other had are very difficult for me, based just on the position I have to put my left hand in, it's painful! I should have took up the Cello 30 years ago.
