Rich, one of our readers sent in a tip sharing the below music video by Stjepan Hauser and Luka Sulic, and we had to share it with you guys.  The duo did a remake of Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal, but the whole thing is done with Luis and Clark carbon fiber cello’s that simply sound awe-inspiring.  If you want to learn more about how Luis and Clark actually make their carbon fiber cello, you’ll find the post we made showing the behind the scenes very interesting.

    Watch the second video of how they make this cello and you see that the bridge is just held onto the cello by the tension of the strings.

    Then seeing these two guys hammer at the cello you gotta wonder how that bridge stays in place?
    Not to mention that piece that he places in between the front and back.

      William, that’s how all members of the violin family’s bridges work… There is a tremendous amount of tension on any stringed instrument that a horse hair bow won’t come close to moving the strings from where they sit. Without the tremendous tension, the strings wouldn’t be able to vibrate at their frequencies. I’m just surprised that the cellos maintained that good of resonance with such a rigid construction material, as even the type of wood you use on a cello will change the way it sounds drastically!
