Hi all. This is Irv. I currently have 3 cellos, which are all in need of repair. I have not played a note on any of them yet, although I did purchase Muller Rusch method book for the cello (the same series of books that I am using to play the violin).
The first cello is a Bellafina Musicale that had the sound post poke through the front plate. All plywood construction (unfortunately) but it is very pretty. I plan to take pictures of the repair (Fiddlerman, would it be possible to add a Cello repair/setup portion of this area or do I post the repair under the violin repair section?).
The second cello is a Bellafina that has a spruce top and plywood back and ribs. The back has a crack in the sound post area (much easier repair than the poke through above).
The third cello is a Cecilio electric with a splintered peg box. I have already glued the pieces and added a carbon fiber rod for additional support. All I need to do now is add some car body compound, sand, and spray paint black to match existing.
MrYikes gave me a couple of sets of cello strings and I previously purchased a set of Hellicores. I also have Knilling perfection pegs for them. I hope to get to the repairs this week.
