The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

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 5 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 5 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.

Solid Wood Construction

This Yamaha student cello is made from solid woods, featuring a spruce and maple construction which gives a richer and more resonant sound in comparison to many other student model instruments. Built onto the handcrafted body are high quality fittings. An ebony fingerboard gives the performer a hard wood on which to play, whilst the pegs and chinrest have been made from rosewood.

Wittner Components and D'addario Strings

The Yamaha VC5S comes with high quality components that you would expect from a much higher value instrument. The tailpiece and fine tuners have been made by Wittner, who produce top class components for string instruments. As well as this, D'addario strings have been added to the cello to create a brilliant sound achievable straight out of the box.

Everything You Need

This Yamaha kit comes with everything you need to get started on your musical journey. The Gear4music music stand and Hercules travelite cello stand both come with a lightweight design, making them easily portable to and from lessons. Also included is a bow, non slip endpin and Belcat chromatic tuner. A polishing cloth is included in this beginners pack to help keep the instrument looking like new for longer.
