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 Plus with refill kit

Oasis Plus is a case humidifier sized for the cello's needs.  Humigel 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.  We include adhesive-backed velcro for more reliable attachment in your hard case, and a humigel refill kit.  At season's end be sure to empty, rinse and dry so you can start with fresh crystals at the start of the next season of cold/dry air.

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.

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.

Hill Varnish Cleaner & Polish
