Daniel Acebes “El Chelista”

I am a cellist, but I am a rocker too. I always wanted to stand/move/dance with my cello. My NXTa gave me that great possibility. In addition, my NS brought me to a whole new world of sounds, effects and pedals. It so fun to play and very accurate in comparison with an acoustic cello. I Love it!
