Our opinion about HBCE 830BK 4/4 E-Cello

by Musicngear Lead Editor
This is a pretty good electronic cello that can be a great choice for a beginner. As long as you replace the strings with higher quality ones, it will offer a good value for this price. It can be a great choice for those living in a flat, who want to practice in the middle of the night without disturbing their neighbors. Most buyers were very pleased with the Harley Benton HBCE 830BK 4/4 E-Cello, giving it an overall rating of 3.6 out of 5.
8 Reasons to Buy
  • Amazing and unique design
  • Good accessories (soft bag, composite-bow, rosin, battery, cable and fine tuners)
  • Delivers a good sound
  • Good price
  • Not as loud as an acoustic cello, but still loud enough. A good choice if you’re living in a flat and have neighbors. It can also be connected to an amplifier
  • Good quality materials for this price range
  • It has many improvements compared to the previous version
  • The ankles hold the chord well and the bow is perfectly adapted
4 Reasons to Avoid Buying
  • You must change the strings, since the ones provided are not good enough and will break easily (the replacing process is much easier compared to an acoustic cello)
  • You will need a jack / 3.5 adapter if you want to connect conventional headphones to this instrument, thus making the helmet provided useless
  • It takes some time to adjust with its size and weight in case you are used to an acoustic cello
  • The sound is very electronic, so don’t expect an acoustic sound
