Drag a cornerto scale proportionally. This bass instrument originatedin Italy in the 1530s. It is related to the ancient lyre,which is part of the chordophone family. This instrument's bass vibrations are created by plucking them or by bowing the strings. The Italian word for plucking is pizzicato and for bowingis archo. The beautiful cello has been playedby the famous Ludwig Van Beethoven,Starvinsky, and a modern artist,Yo Yo Ma. Similar to a guitar, a cello's pitch is changed by the tuners at thetop of the neck. Like taught in class, the more tension on the strings, the higher the pitch of the sounds waves in the vibration of the strings. The cello cannot be manually amplified without an electrical amplifier. There is a bridge in the middleof the cello that allows the vibrationson the strings to move freely through the full length of the string to produce a richer sound. The spike at the bottom of a cello helpsthe cellist have a more secure grip on the instrument, which also increases theresonance. The resonance is the insured range of expression.

Citations When the strings of the cello are played,the string vibrates, causing a sound. Sincethe strings are longer, there is more lengththe vibrations have to cover. Thus, the cello produces a low sound. A violin is 14 inches so it has a higher pitch with the higher frequencyof waves, whereas the 4ft cello has a lower frequency so it has a lower pitch.
