Just like anywhere else online, when you order a Cecilio instrument, it ships directly from Cecilio's warehouse. Fiddlershop doesn't do any setup work to them.
Customers in Alaska and Hawaii will be contacted for additional shipping charges
Cecilio’s instruments can only be sold within the USA.
When the box arrived, I had a heart attack. The box arrived badly torn up. So much for "FRAGILE HANDLE WITH CARE". Thankfully the instrument was shipped in the hard case. The varnish on the cello is a bit runny at the bottom of the cello, but it's barely noticeable. The bridge was easy to install. The bow arrived with some hair broken off. Can't tell you how it sounds yet as the rosin doesn't seem to work.
We bought this for our son just starting out. He has only been playing a month, but so far it is working well for him. It has a lovely deep sound. My only complaint is because the cello shipped directly from Cecilio, it was packed poorly. While the cello arrived safe, the bow and all accessories arrived loose and broken in the box. Fiddlershop staff was amazing at helping me to get replacements. I am grateful to the staff. Thank you. But the replacements, while not broken, were of an inferior quality to those they had originally sent. The cello itself is great but the accessories are not. The pocket zipper on the hard case broke my son's first day using it. If you'd like a decent starter cello I'd definitely recommend this one, but I'd recommend buying a higher quality bow separately.
Very good cello....my daughter loves it....excellent sound and quality
Not to great... - Cello came broken, had to send back - Replacement came with Sound Post loose and rolling around inside cello (had to find local store to reinstall, was reimbursed cost) - Replacement came without Bow or Soft Case like the original did (these have since been shipped out to me) Fiddlershop customer service rep was great and easy to work with but these issues should never have been a problem with big ticket items like this. Quality control and inspection (from wherever instruments ship from) was the major cause of issues.
Hi Grant! We are so sorry you have had problems with your Cecilio Cello. Unfortunately, Cecilio ship their instruments directly to the customers. That means that Fiddlershop never sees the Cecilio instruments and that we never set up them in our shop. In other words, they aren't Fiddlerman approved. Happy it worked out in the end.
Looked everywhere for a Cello and found Fiddlershop. What a great web sight and wonderful cello's to pick from. The experience was amazing from picking out a cello to the delivery and finally opening the box to a beautiful product. thank you for a wonderful experience.
