The selection among solid-body electric cellos is a bit more limited than that of electric violins but cellists nevertheless have several great options to choose from. There are several important factors to consider when shopping for a solid body electric cello, including:
- Physical points of reference
- Pickup, onboard electronics and the resulting tone
- Number of strings
- Headphone jack/preamp for practice
- Fretted or non-fretted fingerboard
We will outline these important factors and help you figure out which features are most important for your needs and ultimately narrow your selection to the best cello for your needs and budget.
