Electric Cello or Acoustic Cello?

Question:

I’m interested in purchasing a good cello for myself. It has been over 50 years that I once played the cello in my grammar school orchestra. I currently play an electric bass guitar in my church praise band. I was considering purchasing an electric cello. What are your thoughts regarding purchasing a standard cello verses an electric cello?

Answer:

Acoustic or electric? It mostly depends on where and with whom you will be playing. If you will be only playing with your praise band, I think the electric would be a good choice. If you will be playing with other acoustic string instruments, an acoustic cello will make it easier to blend with the group. As far as specific recommendations, I don’t own an electric cello but I know a few professional cellists who own the Yamaha electric cello and are very pleased. I do know the Cecilio company and their acoustic cellos. I find them to give a good value for the money. I read reviews for the Cecilio electric cello and many of the issues are the same for their acoustic cellos. You can read about some of the common issues here.
