At least it was stolen from a locker and there was no violins involved in the theft...

I had my $5,000 viola stolen from a locker at Georgia State University in 2005, 2 weeks after I started grad school. The guy, dressed like a student, followed me up to the locker room, then 5 minutes after I left, took my instrument out of my locker and walked out the front door of the building. After I filed a police report, one of the administrators of the music department tried to pull the security camera footage, and discovered that the security cameras weren't working, except for the one in the lobby of the building... Oops. But, the next morning, a friend found it at a pawn shop just off campus, and I was able to get it back, thank FSM.

It was a terrible loss. And we are diminished.

The owner was going to sue for treble damages but the judge found the suite bass-less.

He put a $10,000 cello in an unsecured locker? ( i read that as no lock on it) i would not put anything worth over $20 in a locker i cannot lock up or in some way secure against theft.

Glad he got the cello back, if i had to guess is all the local media coverage made it impossible to pawn so they dropped hoping the case will be closed and they will not face jail time.

3 things:

1. Glad he got his instrument back.

2. Why would anyone leave a $10,000 anything in an unsecured locker?

3. Why is this story under the Business tab?

Why is "Cello" pronounced like it's spelled "Chello"? I've wondered about that since I was small.

Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: Why is "Cello" pronounced like it's spelled "Chello"? I've wondered about that since I was small.


It's pronounced that way in Italian. The cello comes from the viol family of instruments, which were popularized in Italy. One of its ancestors was the viola da gamba, an instrument meant to be played while held between the legs - which is what the indentations in the side come from. The next invention in the instrument's line was the violoncello da spalla, which was meant to be held by its neck over the player's shoulder. The name somehow got shortened to cello, and some minor tweaks were made during the 17th and 18th century to give us the instrument we've got now.
