Tomorrow is my 18th birthday so I'll probably be getting more birthday money than usual and I can't decide what to use that money on, drums or a cello. I've always wanted to play cello but I couldn't afford it so I played violin instead. But on the other hand I'd really like a drum set to mess around on.

A drum would be something different since you already know violin, but I would vote cello only because I love it so much.

Drums. They're much more versatile and depending on your music style, probably more practical

Cello sounds awesome, but I've heard it's extremely hard to play. Plus drums would probably be a lot more useful. I vote drums, but it's close.

Cello strings get dirty quickly and cost quite alot to replace, ontop of that you have to keep the bow maintained and kept at the proper tension (cello/violin bows are quite fragile) and you'll probably need a humidifier depending on where you live to keep it in good condition.

I am honestly really glad I didn't see every response say something like "zOmG teh Cellos is 4 teh pussiez!"

Pit...some days you actually make me proud.


On topic, however, I would honestly go with a Cello, because you know you already like to play stringed instruments.

It all comes down to what you want people to think of you.

Do you want to be considered a musician or a neanderthal?

No, it comes down to do I wanna beat something or do I wanna play some that can make a girl ice her panties..... think about it

I'm gonna have to say cello, but being a cellist myself i might be a bit biased.

EDIT: And being a cellist (not professional, just play in a high-level school orchestra), i can say that i do not pay $50-$70 a month.

If you're super-anal about it, you can get a humidifier. The bows aren't that difficult to take care of. Most of them are fiberglass and they won't snap like a twig. Strings do wear down but i only replace mine when they break which doesn't happen too often.

I'd just probably get a dampit like I have for my violin. I already know about proper bow care because you learn a few things after playing violin for 7 years. My violin strings have lasted quite a while but cello strings probably wear a bit quicker.

And to the guy that mentioned Narnia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEum4kO88LE

You don't how to play a theremin and can build one for fifty bucks. Anyway, drums since I feel they help people be better at guitar.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
