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.

About Simon Joseph:

Simon József, Master Luthier was born in May 26th 1945 in Transilvania,in a village wich is situated in the Harghita Moutains in the Carpathians. His father (Sándor) was a sculptor and a woodman, therefore as a child he knew the forest, loving and learning all the secrets of the wood.

In the family home there was an exqusite sculpture workshop; there he learned the woodwork craft from his father, making with much patience violins, zithers and cembalo. 

József became fond of making his first violin at Csatószeg. At the age of 15, he made the decision to move to Reghin so as to learn more thoroughly the way in wich the musical instruments are made. Reghin was the centre of luthiers in Romania. Being very crafty and thanks to the years spent with his father in the workshop, he quickly learned the luthiers secrets, learning from the luthier Roman Boianciuc.

For many years he has been working as a projector of musical instruments for a well-known company. In the present he is also a member of Romanian luthiers association. Having two sons,the master luthier Simon József initiated them also in the making of musical instruments. Together with his two sons József and Nándor as family of luthiers they founded the Jonacoviolins workshop for making musical instruments.
