Cello Sizing Guide

If you have a cello to try, sit at the end of the chair with your feet flat on the floor. Lean the cello at a 45 degree angle against your body. Extend the endpin so that the top of the cello body rests in the center of your chest. The C peg should be slightly behind your left ear. Make sure you can reach both ends of the fingerboard easily. If you don't have an instrument already, see this chart for approximate sizing by age and height.

Review Videos

This cello is sold as B-stock due to a manufacturing imperfection where the neck meets the pegpox. Please see 2nd photo. This small issue is purely aesthetic and has no impact on the sound of the cello.

Forte3D™ is using new technology in combination with the timeless art of acoustic instruments to create the next step in classical music.

The international patent-pending design uses novel physics to allow the tops of the cellos to act more like the cone of a speaker. Instead of using a rigid arched shape akin to traditional cellos, the tops use tensile strength to support the bridge, more like the surface of a trampoline. The unique hybrid design incorporates two flat CNC-cut pieces of carbon fiber serving as the top and back of the instrument. This entirely new design allows the vibrations and sound to travel more freely through the instrument to emit a robust, yet polished sound.

Constructing an instrument out of carbon fiber using traditional methods is tremendously expensive and labor-intensive and tends to sound overly harsh and brittle. Forte3D™’s original design creates a profoundly resonant, dynamic sound box, eliminating these characteristics.

As the ribs of the instruments are 3D-printed, they have a softer surface, which absorbs these unpleasant frequencies to produce a sweeter and more beautiful natural sound while also possessing the ability to roar over an orchestra when coaxed.

Cello Specifications

Top and Back Plate: Concave Carbon Fiber Panel
Ribs, neck, scroll: 3D Printed
Fingerboard: Composite
Pegs: Wittner finetune pegs
Bridge: Hand-carved professional-level bridge from Teller
Strings: Maker's choice, normally D'Addario Helicore, but subject to change.

Adjustable Neck Projection

Forte3D™ recognized the opportunity for offering cellists a customizable instrument that still produces the same beautiful music. Never before has it been possible for a cellist to adjust the height of their strings without the expensive help of a luthier to cut a new bridge. All you have to do is completely lower the string tension, turn the screw, and your strings are now at the desired height. Each cello is shipped with an Allen wrench for ultimate convenience.

What's Included:
  • Forte3D™ Carbon Fiber 3D Printed Cello
  • Black Cello Gig Bag
  • Wolf Tone Eliminator
  • Allen Wrench
About Forte3D™ Cellos

Created by Alfred Goodrich and Elijah Lee, Forte3D™ was started to bridge the disparity gap between the price and quality of mass-produced instruments and those that are hand-crafted by a luthier. Using new methods and designs, we aspire to give everyone access to beautiful-sounding, affordable, quality instruments.

By redefining traditional design, pricing, and perception, we aspire to reshape the industry and culture surrounding musical instruments. Everything we’ve been developing as a part of Forte3D™ - the materials, CAD, and the very idea of manufacturing instruments that can compete with handmade ones—has been mold-breaking.
