However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Robust Student Instrument

This student cello is a sturdy and reliable instrument for beginners and younger musicians. The body is made from a varnished laminate Spruce top and Basswood back and sides produce a lightweight, tough and flexible body. The inlaid purfling helps to protect against cracks forming at the edge of the instrument and allows the top to flex more freely.

The ebonized Hardwood pegs and fingerboard prevent the build-up of moisture, making the instrument long lasting. The solid Maple bridge and metal tailpiece are hard wearing and durable. Easy to use fine tuners on the tailpiece allow for simple and quick tuning.

Warm Tone

This cello produces a warm and even sound throughout the registers. The steel core strings create a clear and crisp tone, allowing the beginner to concentrate on playing technique. Each string has silk wrappings to help students identify the notes and to create friction against the tuning pegs.

1/2 Size Cello

The student cello, bow and case have been scaled down to meet the needs of the younger beginner. The half size instrument is ideal for a player whose height is roughly 4ft and 5in (137cm), or for children between 7 and 11 years old.

Includes Bow, Rosin and Case

The cello comes with everything the beginner needs to get playing straight away. The bow made from Brazilwood and synthetic hair is easy to use and robust, meaning it will withstand the stresses of students learning proper bowing techniques. A half mounted frog and ebony adjuster make it easy to learn with as well as comfortable to hold.

The canvas covered, hard foam case is easy to carry around as well as protective for the instrument. Wheels on the bottom mean it can be rolled around and shoulder straps mean it can be put on your back with ease. Pockets both inside and out make it easy to store the included rosin as well as any other accessories.
