Without being a virtuoso of the cello, this is trs apprciable MODEL. The sound is okay and trs Fidler (more than for the violin in the same brand). The game parru me harder than a traditional cello (probably because the bridge is less rounded). As a, I progressed quickly. The finish leaves DSIR, but ... should not be too demanding for the unbeatable price: 411 at Thomann ( https://www.thomann.de ) . The look is nice, however, trs. Personally, I prfre Yamaha SVC at 100. Frankly, for beginners, no hsitation. Considering the price, it is difficult to find an equivalent acoustic instrument.
