( In the $450 to $600 range) let me know more and if this one seems legit or why not to get it. Great answers are crazy silhper loved and appriciated!!!!!!

If you want a poor sounding, school quality cello than this is as good as you might get for a plywood cello. Shar is a good company and as such it is probably set up properly. But because it is made out of plywood rather than the proper solid woods like maple and spruce, the instrument will be dead and not vibrate very well.

You really need to spend at least $800 on a carved cello to get anything worth buying. Anything less and you will need to replace many of the parts when you get it with better ones that are properly installed. With most cheap instruments the pegs are ill fitting and will only frustrate you and your teacher, and you will break strings more often. The other problem with the low priced instruments is that of inferior woods which are too soft and the parts wear to easily and the sound is effected negatively. Below is the least expensive outfit that I have found to be acceptable.

I personally prefer the Eastman model 100 as my choice for the beginner cellist however it is around $1200-1500 depending on the store. Stores can only advertise it for around $1400 because of the manufacturer’s rules but give the store a call and they may be able to give you a better price. When I was in business I sold it for $1200.00, also a used one might sell for as little as $750.00.

You may want to rent a cello first to see how you like it. If you go to a violin store rather than a music store, it will be set up properly and a portion of the rent will apply towards the purchase of an instrument from the store plus you will be able to trade it in later for an upgrade. If you can afford at least $800, go to a violin store and have them show you instruments, call them first to see if they have anything in that price range. I always recommend trying an instrument before you buy rather than to purchase something over the internet. Don't ever buy from EBAY or Craigslist. The violin store will also let you try the instrument for a week at home before you buy.
