Cello hairball

Although many musicians find it hard to believe, hairballs are common in instruments, particularly violins and violas.


Musicians shed, small debris falls in, and over time, a quiet little ball is formed, rolling around inside the instrument. This one is a little unusual, being from a student-level cello, and measures about an inch in diameter. For metric folk, that's about 2-1/2 cm .
