We'll be happy to hook you up with a great violin when you are ready. 🙂

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.

I could easily add a forum but it might barely be used. Why don't you add them right here on this thread and if it becomes more popular, I'll move it to a separate newly created topic. 🙂
