Electric cellos are becoming more and more popular. Typically they are used for performers of jazz, pop, country, new age, etc. They are stringed instruments that are basically a cross between an electric guitar and an acoustic cello. An acoustic cello can be made into an electric cello by adding a pick-up that runs to an amp. Straight electric cellos are available in several designs. They can be made from a variety of materials and include the pick-up built into the instrument. Much like an electric guitar, they can also have a variety of effects such as reverb, delay, or distortion.
Finding the right electric cello to suit your needs can be a challenge. Violin Outlet carries pick-ups from Fishman, Realist, and LR Baggs. Our electric cellos come from suppliers such as Yamaha, Bridge, Mark Wood, and NS Designs.
