The Horizon electric cello by 3DVarius (France) is based on the classical touch point dimensions of an acoustic cello and inspired by their Equinox electric violin design. Lightweight and highly portable, this cello is easy to play and sounds great with 3DVarius' own piezo element-per string pickup bridge, which provides great output and even balance.

Design

Horizon was designed and refined to obtain a light and easy to transport instrument.

Its body is created in one single piece of ash wood. This particularity ensures the most perfect accuracy of the audio spectrum. It allows for smooth, optimal sound-wave flow throughout the instrument. The weight distribution was calculated to reduce its final weight compared to an acoustic cello.


Ergonomic

The creation of this electric cello was done in partnership with many professional cellists from different musical backgrounds. 3DVarius' main goal was to achieve ideal ergonomics and optimal playing comfort. Only the more important elements of the cello were kept, in order to create an electric instrument lighter than an acoustic one.

The tuning is made easy by the use of bass tuning pegs. These pegs have a mechanical resistance to prevent going out of tune.


Tripod or Strap system

The Horizon electric cello can be played seated or standing. We made different interchangeable support systems for all musicians’ needs.

The cello can be placed on its tripod (included) or played with the strap system (sold separately), allowing the cellist to move freely. Adapt each support to your needs with the help of a lockable 360° ball joint, which allows inclination of the cello in three axes of rotation.

The fastening is identical for either of the interchangeable support systems. The musician can interchange the tripod with the strap system support in a few seconds with a simple and fast clip system.

These two systems are one of the main advantages of this electric cello. With its many adjustments, it is suited to all body types.


Sound

The Horizon electric cello is equipped with a proprietary 3DVarius passive piezoelectric pickup bridge, using one sensor per string. It delivers a clear and powerful sound while preserving many dynamics. The pickup prevents feedback and is free of extraneous noises.


Made in France

Production is done in the Occitanie region between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees mountains. The raw materials, like the ash wood in this cello, are from France too.
