Bois d’Harmonie tailpiece
French style tailpiece made from high-quality ebony, 235 mm long with integrated composite fine tuners. Kevlar tail cord is available but not included because not everyone chooses this option.
Composite Fitting for 10mm Endpin (NHM)
This New Harmony Music endpin fitting is composite with stainless steel and can be used with your existing 10 mm endpin, or you can purchase one of our options. Keep in mind there are tolerances so a misfit (while rare) is possible. You will need to know the diameter of the hole in your cello from the current fitting so you can choose either the Small 23.5 mm, Medium 25.5 mm, or Large 27.5 mm. This is a traditional straight bore hole. The 6-degree angled model is listed separately.
Cube Acoustics tail gut
Designed for better sound transfer when used with the Cube Acoustics endpins — which we do sell — and the housing, which can be ordered. It is very strong, and may add a clarity to articulation and/or increase volume. It is the same patented alloy in the tail gut tie block and wire as the endpin.
Stringvision Posture Pegs
Posture Pegs from Stringvision afford freedom of movement by eliminating the protruding peg heads. Tuning is accomplished by means of a removable key with grip. The peg shank is a blackwood blank, tapering from 14mm at the collar to 12.5 mm at the small end, 6.3 cm in length. It must be shaped and fit by a luthier to the existing peg hole. Set of 2 pegs includes two shanks and two keys. *The steel sleeve is 2 cm long, so if you want to use these pegs in a fractional cello, make sure the peg diameter is thick enough so as not to interfere.

Pegheds (offered here only in our cellos)
PegHeds are the original geared pegs, and are made in Winnsboro, SC by Chuck Herin. Once installed, all you need is a thumb and index finger to tune and the peg stays put. When humid summer weather causes friction pegs to swell and stick, or dry winter air causes shrinking and slippage, Pegheds will hold firmly. Prices vary with wood variety and style. Pegs must be ordered to fit your specific cello, or you may be able to have your own pegs retrofit in some instances. Nearly every cello here has Pegheds installed, and we highly recommend them. If you are wishing you could use a Posture Peg, please note the stubby C peg available, which is pictured in the product gallery. We no longer sell sets of PegHeds here, but do have them installed in cellos we sell. We love to promote and explain them. Go to PegHeds official website to order.
8 mm Solid Carbon Fiber Endpin NHM
New Harmony’s 8mm carbon fiber endpin is 20″ long, weighs ~ 42 grams with a rubber cap that weighs 6 grams. It is a one-for-one replacement for most solid metal endpins. If you don’t have calipers to measure diameter of your existing endpin, measure around the circumference of the rod. If it’s 1″, the diameter is 8mm. The tip is heat-hardened steel that can be sharpened, though it maintains its original point for a long time. Some players report some flex compared to solid metal rods, but this varies with player movement (emoting) as well as how close you are to full extension. *Add $10 for the model with a steel carbide tip
8 mm Cube Acoustics endpin
Cube Acoustics 8mm endpin is made of a patent-pending special alloy. Weight is ~ 246 g, length is 23.5″. The extra length allows for more rod resonating in the cello. Of course this varies with height of cellist, body length and contours of cello, so results should vary. As far as the tonal enhancements you will experience, you simply have to try it and gauge its performance for yourself. The endpin will tarnish over time and it can be left to a natural brown patina. If you want to polish it, recommended is 0000 steel wool, or brass/silver polish. Tip can be resharpened, or retrofit with a silicon carbide tip.
8 mm Carbon Fiber Endpin Set NHM
The 8mm NHM endpin is solid carbon fiber with a heat-hardened steel tip, 20″ long and comes with the matching composite fitting which tightens with a collar rather than putting pressure of a screw tip against the rod. Fittings are available in 27.5 and 25.5mm so you need to know the size the opening in your cello when placing your order. Protective rubber cap for the extremely sharp tip is included and extras may be purchased.
Composite Fitting for 8 mm endpin (NHM)
This New Harmony Music endpin fitting is composite with stainless steel and can be used with your existing 8mm endpin, or you can purchase one of our options. Keep in mind there are tolerances so a misfit (while rare) is possible. You will need to know the diameter of the hole in your cello from the current fitting so you can choose either the Small 23.5 mm, Medium 25.5 mm, or Large 27.5 mm. There is no angled bore option for an 8mm endpin.
10 mm Carbon Fiber Endpin Set (NHM)
New Harmony Music 10mm solid carbon fiber endpin is 20″ long and comes with a composite fitting with a standard straight bore. Fittings are available in three diameters: Small 23.5 mm, Medium 25.5 mm, Large 27.5 mm. The endpin tip is made of heat-hardened steel and can be re-sharpened if necessary. Longer endpins are available with a surcharge.
Set with 24″ solid CF endpin is $123.00
Set with 28″ solid CF endpin is $133.50 *may not fit in short-pattern cellos
10 mm Solid Carbon Fiber Endpin (NHM)
New Harmony Music’s solid 10 mm CF endpin has an extremely sharp heat-hardened steel tip which can be resharpened. If you don’t have calipers to measure the diameter of your current endpin, you can measure around the circumference. If it’s 1.25″ you have a 10 mm endpin. Each endpin is sold with a (replaceable) plastic-lined rubber cap. While the standard endpin length is 20″, some cellists are finding that more endpin resonating inside their cello improves the sound. Results always vary, so we can’t tell you what will happen, only that we can give you the opportunity to try and find out.
20″ endpin $63.00
24″ endpin $73.50
28″ endpin $84.00
