Okay, first off I'm not sure if this is the best place to be posting this but because there's no other forum that seems to fit the bill I'll just go ahead and post it here.

So anyways earlier today I picked up a Cello for $30 at a garage sale...Case and bow included...It's missing a couple strings but other than that it seems to be in pretty excellent condition. My question is this: Should I attempt to teach myself how to play it or simply try to resell it for profit (And if so how much do these things usually go for?)?

I assume Cellos are like big ass violins so you should learn with a teacher becasue all of the technique and stuff like that.

Try learning it and then sell it when all around you threaten to rip your eyes out.

You should be careful what you say. Some asshole will probably sig it.

Cellos aren't the easiest of instruments, I'd recommend a teacher. Also, I'd probably get that thing checked out by a Luthier that specializes in bowed instruments before putting a price tag on that thing.

I voted sell. Although I love to hear the cello, I think that it is a very difficult instrument, so unless you really want to dedicate yourself to it, you should sell it and buy something that goes with what you are already learning.
On the other hand, maybe you have a knack for learning different instruments and tunings - if so ignore me and jam with it.

It takes a bit of time to get the bow right. During that time it sounds like 3000 cats fucking inside a shoe box.

Might as well try. If you don't like it then sell it.

You just turn it to the side, and, cello, its a bass.
