And it sounds amazing! I kept the same settings on my Blackstar tube amp and pedals from the last time I played my 7 string guitar, and it's like wow! I could play some Rush on this thing! Aside from that I was able to play scales the first time i picked it up, much easier to play than Violin or Viola (for me anyway) even got a little vibrato on my first try. Not bad for Cello day 1 🙂

I'll put it through my Fishman Artist Loudbox next, that'll give me more traditional Cello tones. I'll post some videos as soon as I feel confident.

NS Design is definitely a great builder.

I'm using a Codabow Prodigy with Yumba rosin and it appears to be a great combo.

Cool!  I'm thinking some zepplin (kashmier) may be in order.  You have the tools there fer sure.

For sure! There are several songs by Led Zep I'd like to touch on besides that one, No Quarter, The Rover, Achilles Last Stand to name a few

Haha..Kashmir stuck out for the dadgad guitar part and doing that on cello.  Might work.  Seems like there are strings playing behind the guitar on that.
