I play the cello. I was asked to play in a wedding on the 20th.... and I will earn $150!!!!!
I sat down to put a new set of strings on my cello tonight, so the sound quality would be great for the wedding, and my cello broke!
The "catgut" the holds the tailpiece in place snapped. Then my soundpost fell.
I live in an area where string instruments are NOT taught and played very often. I don't even know of a music store to take this too.
So I have 1.5 weeks, still need to practice, and now NO CELLO. All the money from the wedding is going to have to go to pay for repairs. There goes any extra cash.
Frustrating! I'm waiting to hear back from my duet partner. I'm hoping he has a cello hiding somewhere, a miracle store nearby, or SOMETHING!
