   The size of this instrument is completely different from a 4/4 or a 7/8 cello. It is not impossible to be used by a cellist, but since it is so very small it  most likely needs a quite long period of practicing in order to adjust to its short string-length. (For a better understanding of the instrument’s size: Doll is 185cm  [6′].)
