The Fiddlershop Family
Why is Fiddlershop growing so fast and revolutionizing the string instrument industry? We believe that music and instruments should be accessible to everyone at a price they can afford.

With over 40 years as a professional violinist in orchestras around the world, he brings unmatched expertise in music and business to everything we do.
We buy our cellos directly from the maker - a rare business practice that lowers our cost so we can pass the savings on to you!

Up until now, we have been renting a cello from a local music shop. The music shop cello was sub-par and frustrating to learn on. When I saw Fiddlershop advertise an entry level Cello with their stellar set-up, I knew it was the right choice. My son is ready to move from a 1/2 to 3/4 sized instrument, so it seemed like the perfect time. The Cello arrived carefully packaged and expertly set-up! My son is so pleased with the instrument. It has a beautiful tone and is much easier to play than his previous Cello. It is also beautifully finished. I love the price, and I am pretty sure that this Cello will cost us nearly $200 less than the cost to rent for 24 months at the local shop.
I'm a violin player and decided to give cello a try, so I started with this Tower Strings Entertainer package and could not be more pleased! It has everything you need to start off, and then some! Very nice upgrades with the rosin, bow and case for a beginner package and with a great price. The case isn't described well here, so I want to let you know it's canvas, lightweight yet protects the cello well, has backpack straps, wheels/top pull strap, nice size music pocket on back; good size pocket inside for rosin, mute, cloth, etc.; beautiful blue velvet-like plush interior. I was very pleased. And of course the cello is great! No problems with shipping, thank goodness. Came FedEx with sound post and bridge still in place due to the careful packing and marking on the box from the shop. I had a couple minor issues with other parts of my order that the shop resolved very friendly and quickly. Very top rate experience. I'm so glad I found Fiddlershop!
I bought for my 9 year old daughter who will be starting strings class at her school next year. We have had some online classes and the tutor has been impressed that we had only had to fine tune a couple of times in the month of classes, this is the second instrument (violin) we have bought at Fiddlershop and will not be the last. The cello came well packed and is of great quality at a great price.
I'm a complete beginner to the Cello, and I wanted something that I could just buy and be satisfied with as soon as it came out of the box, and both the instrument and the prep work done by Fiddlershop exceeded all expectations. It sounds great, or at least good enough for my ability.
Overall, I am very pleased with the cello I purchased! There was a small hiccup, and the first cello I received arrived damaged, but they made it so easy to send back, and I received a replacement in about a week. The cello is beautiful to look at, and it has a rich red glossy finish that I love. Being a beginner, I had nothing to compare it to but the cello I was renting from a local music shop. My new cello is very easy to tune, it is very well crafted, and to me, it “sings”. However, I brought both of the cellos over for my teacher to compare. He said the Fiddlershop cello was much more aesthetically pleasing and it has a richer tone. He said I definitely upgraded! I am so happy I chose to buy from Fiddlershop because I now have a better cello that is actually my own for literally half the cost. Thank you!
