JennyD Posted January 5, 2012 Share Posted January 5, 2012 My 6yo plays the cello, which we rent from Johnson Strings. He is currently using a 1/4 size cello, which he just moved up to about a month ago. Yesterday he set the cello down after practice -- just set it down, didn't drop it or anything -- and there was a tremendous BANG! The entire bottom part of the cello just cracked open, split right along the seam. I called Johnson and they are shipping out a replacement cello (thank goodness for insurance, although those shipping fees are murder) but does anyone know why this might have happened? Our house is extremely dry, and I'm wondering if that might be a problem for the cello. We do have humidifiers on at night in the upstairs bedrooms -- would it perhaps be better to keep the cello in there, even though the humidity fluctuates more in those rooms?
