I just wanted to point something out to newbie cellists looking to buy an electric cello. 

Pay attention to the shape. Electric cellos come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. They look very cool. But, if you are new to cello, I would suggest you buy a traditionally shaped electric cello. Why? It is the shape.

A cello is shaped to go between the legs/knees. If you are learning cello, you need that stability. You need the control. I purchased a backward "S" shaped electric cello, out of necessity. I needed to use it temporarily because a knee was sore. This is when I discovered that the shape really does make a difference.

I am learning cello. I had a hard time balancing the backward "S" shaped cello. I did figure it out and was able to play it, but I have played cello for a while, so I am used to how to hold one, I just don't play very well. Don't make things harder for yourself if you are new to cello and getting an electric one. Stick to the basic shape.
