I am very proud of my self today. I have purchased a cheap student cello almost one year ago and the fine-tuners were really hard to move that they caused me blisters in my fingers whenever I try to adjust the tune a bit. My previous teacher asked me to change the fine tuners but couldn’t find any shop in Bahrain that sells Cello or even its accessories so I did everything online, that’s why I’ve purchased a new tailpiece with built-in fine-tuners! I was bit scared because I have no idea how to change the tailpiece…I still remember the first time I decided to tune the strings myself and the D string snapped on me! and I had to order new strings(and they are expensive)!
Once the new tailpiece arrived today all my fears disappeared! it was so natural and easy! and now I can tune my cello in minutes without pain!
I should become a Luthier because I can change strings, adjust bridges and lately changing tailpieces! Yeah, I am that good! and yes, I can also tune my own cello…thank you!
