DIY electric cello update and video performance

November 21st, 2017

I further refined my DIY electric cello by lowering the bridge and chopping away more of the body to allow for easier bowing of the upper two strings. I still have to work out a good way to hold it for performance. To do a traditional vertical method I will have to install a post for it to sit on. At this writing I’m not committed to that. I hope you enjoy the video – I used a Strymon El Capistan as an effect insert in Sonar.
