All Shapes and Sizes

Click on the image above for a preview of the first few slides.

Ever wonder why nobody looks very similar in their physical approach to the cello?  This presentation is for you!  All Shapes and Sizes is a wonderful exploration of human body proportions with regards to cello set up.  Several body “variables” put together in various combinations - long torso, short legs, long arms and short torso, and many hand-digit relationships are considered with solutions suggested.  In addition, this includes a comprehensive survey of the erratic cello sizes available for rental throughout the USA - with conclusive measurements for what could be considered appropriate fractional-sized instruments.
