Frequently Asked Questions

Do you ensure the sound post and bridge are correctly fitted to each cello?


Most certainly. This is one of the most crucial parts of our expert set up on every instrument we sell. Every cello has had its sound post and bridge hand-carved by our team of luthiers (violin makers). When buying any string instrument we advise only purchasing one that has been expertly set up. This ensures correct string heights and spacings as well as the instrument sounding and playing its best. 

Do your cellos come with a warranty?

Yes! Our warranty is 12 months from date of purchase and covers the instrument for manufacturing defect. We also offer FREE 3-month servicing on all our instruments to ensure your cello performing its best.

Are your cellos ready to play?

Yes. All of our celli are professionally set up and tested by our violin makers and players. We test, tune and inspect every cello before it is carefully packed and shipped to you. Of course, you can also visit us in-store to purchase a cello as all of our instruments are set up, available and ready to take home. 

Does my cello come with a bow and case/bag?

All Simply for Strings 'Outfits' include a case (soft bag) and a bow. We recommend purchasing your own end pin stop and rosin as these are essential for the learner. 
Some of our more advanced instruments are sold as 'instrument only' as most players at this level have their own case and bow or will purchase these separately to give them the choice.

Do you freight cellos all over Australia?

Yes, we do. We carefully package our cellos to ensure they arrive to you safe and sound and ready to play. We have developed our own deluxe fragile shipping service and guarantee our cellos will arrive safely. Any hiccups and we will take care of them ASAP.
