Hello new guy here! I purchased a cello from the fiddlershop about a month ago I bought a Fiddlerman Artist cello. I immediately started lessons with a great teacher and I am moving along nicely. I do have a musical background in other instruments. I will also most likely pick up a violin from the shop sometime soon. Thanks to Pierre and the rest of his crew they are awesome.

I love the sound of the cello, but it would probably be too big for me as I am on the little side, I probably couldn't see around it...and the possibilities of transporting it to lessons would be an extreme adventure!

Mimi Aysha I doubt that. My teacher is an incredible player and teacher and she is tiny. You would be fine

@ vlopez1130

Thank you! I may consider it in the future as it really does sound wonderful, I am sure size really doesn't matter!

Elizabeth Aron is my teacher. I went to your shop with my wife and I met you and your staff. You offered coffee while I tried the artist cello. Things are going great and I appreciate you and your friendly staff.

I remember 🙂 Elizabeth is great. She also told me that she loves that cello.
Please say hi.

I will tell her. I missed you the other day I went in and tried some other bows and left with a 3 Star Holstein. 🙂

Very cool.
Sorry I missed you.
I started working from home on some Fridays. However, I have only been able to do that twice. 🙂

I'm sure you are extremely busy but always make sure you take some time for yourself and cherish that time
