My small 9 year old daughter has just taken Grade 5 & is moving up a 1/2 cello.
We've been looking for 6 weeks for a suitable cello & would value any advice.
Currently our options are a brand new Sander (approx. ?850) & a similar secondhand cello.
We really don't want to spend more than ?1000 if possible, as we'll need to get a hardcase (1/8 cello got damaged by trumpet case) as it will be in school at least twice a week & we'll need to move up at some point in the next two to three years.
Also how important is a good bow & how much should we spend?
Any help gratefully received.
