Endpin Holders (rockstops)

Artino Endpin Holder

Artino's rosewood cello floor (SP20) attaches to chair leg with an adjustable webbed strap.   There are multiple dimples in the wood for placement with or without rubber tip.  If you have a very sharp tip, you can stick it anywhere in the wood. The 2 holes on the other end allow for quick length adjustments by lifting the chair leg and placing it in the alternate hole.

Artino Round Sound Anchor

Artino's SP4W rockstop has a 3" diameter round wood resonating chamber, 3/4 inch deep with non-skid backing.  The web strap extends from 24-43 inches and is detachable so the Artino can be used with or without strap.  The cup that holds the endpin is plastic lined to prevent sharp tips from penetrating.  The effectiveness of  the resonating chamber will vary with a room's features and acoustic properties.

  • Price $20

Artino Sound Anchor Box

Artino's rosewood "floor" (SP30) sits on top of a resonating chamber and attaches to chair via an adjustable webbed strap.   The cello floor has dimples which will accommodate a bare endpin tip.  If you have a super sharp endpin tip, you can stick it anywhere in the wood for quick micro-adjustments.  Effectiveness of the resonating chamber will vary with a room's features and acoustic properties.

Black Hole

Tacky-back rubber rockstop with concave surface sticks to most but not all (clean) floor surfaces. Plastic endpin cup will accommodate bare tips, but some rubber endpin caps will be too large to fit in the cup. Even the extremely sharp tip of the New Harmony endpin will not pierce the liner.  

  • Price $18

Pinstop

Made of recycled plastic, this black rockstop has an adhesive back.  About the size of a credit card, 1/4 inch thick so it slips in your pocket easily -- with the protector strip over the adhesive. When this is brand new, it can require more strength to twist it off a hard floor, so it may be a poor choice for some people.  Moving one's chair can be easier than moving the rockstop, so if you are in a tight orchestral seating, place it carefully.    Just wash the back as necessary to renew the sticky surface.

Vivacello

Vivacello is a small plastic rockstop with 3 round rubber feet for grip and stability, whether used on smooth surface floors or carpets.  Some people prefer the three points of contact with the floor instead of one round disk.  The brass cup in the center is too small to accommodate large rubber caps (like New Harmony) but will fit smaller ones, or bare tips.  Colors: purple, green, blue, red, black.  Cellists who sit with a more vertical posture will find the Vivacello more effective than someone who sits with the endpin extended way in front of them.  The pressure is more horizontal than it is downward, and it can skitter away.

  • Price $15.00

Stoppin

Clear rubber rockstop, 3" square, has a concave tacky bottom to form a suction on most clean smooth surfaces.  Also works on carpets.  The top has a bubbled surface so you can easily adjust placement of your endpin.  This is not a good choice if you have an extremely sharp tip as it will eventually puncture and penetrate the rubber.

  • Price $12.00

Xeros

Xeros is a light-weight ABS plastic rockstop with rubber backing and an adjustable webbed strap with a 2" ring on the other end.  Place the chair leg through the ring to hold in place.

  • Price $15

Stoppin Large

Clear rubber rockstop, 3" square, has a concave tacky bottom to form a suction on most clean smooth surfaces.  Also works on carpets.  The top has a bubbled surface so you can easily adjust placement of your endpin.  This is not a good choice if you have an extremely sharp tip as it will eventually puncture and penetrate the rubber.

Cellino

This wooden rockstop will attach to one or two chair legs for added stability. This is important when cellists have a lot of movement in their playing and a single strap fails to keep the endpin in one place.
