How much does a cello weigh?

Cellos generally weigh about 5 to 7 pounds depending on the type of wood used and the size of the cello.  However, if you add a hard case, bow, and other accessories, the weight can easily begin to add up and exceed 20 pounds. In this case, you may want to get straps for your cello case so that you can wear it like a backpack.
