Cello Accessories

Bow Grip - SV

Stringvision's bow grip is a soft, pliable rubber that slides (wiggles) over frog to help protect the stick from wear, and provide a very comfortable place for your thumb.  You can still maneuver the bow with your fingers, and your thumb is not locked in one position, though it is oriented well and cannot poke through the stick.  A very popular item here.

Oasis

Oasis Plus is a case humidifier sized for the cello's needs.  Special crystals work with (preferably) distilled water in a soft cylindrical membrane. Oasis mounts in your case and slowly releases moisture causing the tube to gradually collapse. You can see easily when you need to add water. Easy, effective.  Fill slowly using supplied plastic syringe so you don't flush the crystals out - they're like fine sand.  Our pricing includes the humigel refill kit that should last for years.

Oasis Hygrometer

This gadget measures and monitors temperature and humidity in your case.  Since the Oasis collapses when it needs to be refilled, the hygrometer is less important than it would be if you use a dampit or a hard-shell humigel container which gives no visual cue that it has gone dry.

  • Price 30.00

Cello Dampit

Dampits can be a safe way to humidify your cello when room and case humidifiers are not an option. Diligence is required to prevent dripping when installed, and it must be checked often or you won't know when it's dried out unless you have a reliable hygrometer.  It consists of a perforated piece of rubber tubing housing a sponge core. When this is moistened, BUT NOT DRIPPING, it is inserted into the cello's F-hole where the moisture can slowly evaporate, releasing moisture for your cello.  Unfortunately, it looks the same whether it's damp or bone dry.

  • Price $14

Stretto Refill Packets

4 refill packets for Stretto humidifier. Prolong life of each packet by using distilled water.

  • Price $17.99

Hill Varnish Cleaner & Polish

W.H. Hill & Sons Varnish Cleaner and Polish. **Varnishes are very different in their makeup, and trying to use a cleaner may be ill-advised.  A luthier is the best person to clean your cello but if you feel confident... Apply a small quantity with a piece of absorbent material, then rub lightly with soft cloth.  Contains turpentine, so there may be mailing restrictions.

  • Price $12.00

Microfiber Cloth

Microfiber cloth has fibers woven into tiny loops that attract dust, dirt and oils like a magnet.  Great for removing rosin dust from instrument, strings and bow.
