Chromatic Cello
Cello drones for improving intonation

All you need to improve your intonation is the Chromatic Cello and a CD player. Never again buy expensive, battery munching tuning machines. Tuning to another cello is vastly easier than tuning to an artificial sound from a synthesizer.

What's On The Compact Disc
The Chromatic Cello CD contains 5-minute single note drones of all 12 chromatic notes played on the cello in mid range. Each cello drone is calibrated to a 440 A and played on a cello without vibrato. The disc also includes an open strings tuning track. See Track Listing for full details.

How To Use The Chromatic Cello
The cello drones can be used while practicing scales and repertoire. Students can easily learn how to tune their open strings with the tuning track and to tune intervals with the cello drones. See Using the Chromatic Cello for more details.

How The Chromatic Cello Will Help You
Practicing with a drone will prevent drifting sharp or flat in a scale or piece of music and will aid in choosing the best possible versions of each note. Tuning to sound will improve your pitch much better and quicker than using a needle or other sight-related tuner.

Benefits of the Chromatic Cello:

  • Teaches intervals - students learn to choose the best version of each note in combination with the cello drone
  • Trains students to tune their instrument
  • The cello drone tethers players to its pitch, training them not to drift high or low
  • Replaces expensive electronic tone generators, which have an unnatural sound
  • Gives treble cleff instrumentalists the means to practice tuning to a lower instrument
