This TK 6 string MIDI/electric cello was custom built for Alex Simpson in the UK
The instrument (seen here), is loaded with high end custom features like an RMC Piezo Polydrive midi system, and a high end Bogen tripod system.
This TK Electric/MIDI capable 6 string Cello features a Purpleheart bound Macassar  Ebony fingerboard, 5A flame maple neck, Purpleheart  top, with an African Mahogany body.

The strings are tuned low to high: F-C-G-D-A-E

A  large part of this instruments  phenomenal tone comes from the RMC Polydrive II Cello pickup system.


The Polydrive II drives a multi (individual string) output for Hex/Midi devices; such as the Zeta violin MIDI system or Roland VG-systems.

I have been playing, as well as designing and building bowed instruments since 1990.
This Cello is the result of  years of careful study of these fine instruments.

Note:
Please see some of my other bowed  instruments that I call the  Vicellotar, and the Vicellotar 'V'
Extended neck/heel cut-away
Height adjustable bridge, allows you to customize your own string action on either the bass or treble side.
Also, the Carbon fiber  break
angle piece keeps the strings at the perfect angle as the bridge height is adjusted.
This keeps the tone of the RMC  transducers consistent
