You decided that learning a musical instrument can be fun. You heard the cello on the CD, and you liked its sound. However, before you begin to study it, you would like to know some facts about it. Here are some cello facts for you.

A cello is a bowed string instrument. The word cello comes from the Italian word Violincello. It used to be written with an apostrophe (‘cello) to indicate that the letters were missing. However, the cello is the common name and spelling used today.

The cello looks like a violin, but it is much bigger, so it has many parts. These include a sound body with two F-shaped sound holes, a neck, a peg with tuning forks, a scroll, a bridge, a fingerboard, a tail, four strings, and a bow. Due to its large size, the cellist sits playing with the main body of the instrument between his knees and the neck of the cello above the left shoulder. Therefore, the cello has an end to support it on the ground for playing. So imagine a person (cellist) sitting on a chair and holding a cello with a healthy body between knees and neck over left shoulder. Starting from the bottom, you will see the end attached to the main sound body. A sound body with a tail section is attached to the lower end, to which four strings are attached. The strings are pulled over the support bridge to the top of the cello, where they are attached to pegs for tuning in a pegbox. When you follow the strings from bottom to top, you will see a pad attached over the upper end of the sound body to the carved neck and peg. The cellist will hold and use the bow in left hand.

The cello is usually made from different types of wood but can be made of carbon fiber or aluminum. Parts are joined with glue. The quality and value of the cello are determined by the type (s) of wood used. The size of the cello may vary depending on the size of people playing from young children to adults. All of them are identical in construction.

The strings are made from sheep or goat gut, metal, or synthetic material. Open strings are C G D A, which is exactly the same as the viola, with the exception of one octave below. The cello is tuned to these four open strings. Tuning is done by turning or loosening the tuning pegs to match the sound to an external source such as a piano or tuner.
