A cello implodes

A cellist's recording session goes horribly wrong when her instrument's tailpiece and bridge collapse. The fun starts at around the 35-second mark. Luckily the cello was 'on its last legs', according to the musician.

This is impressive but not at all serious : it is just a tail gut failure. It is noisy, it can scratch the belly varnish but it is just a "fitting" trouble.Nothing to cause the end of a cello ...
