Silk bow cover
Bow sleeves are lined silk acetate with a velcro closure at the end, cord to tie, and C2G monogram in the same color thread as the silk so it’s branded invisibly. The black paisley is 33″ long, the blue pinstripe is 31.5″.
Peg Compound may help if you have friction pegs that stick or slip. It is easy to use, comes in a swivel-up tube like Chapstick. Remove your peg, clean off whatever residue may be on it, and apply just in a thin band where the peg contacts the wood in the peg box. Reinsert the peg and rewind string. A longer-term solution is Pegheds geared pegs if you can make the investment
Hill Varnish Cleaner
W.E. Hill & Sons Varnish Cleaner. Apply a small quantity with a piece of absorbent material, then rub lightly with soft cloth.
**Note: 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, proceed carefully. Contains turpentine, so there may be mailing restrictions.
Cello Stand – Ingles
** Available for pickup here; we are not currently shipping this item.
Ingles gig stand allows you to keep any size cello, with its endpin extended, ready to play. Folding nearly flat for storage, it features two height-adjustable cushioned arms to support the cello’s bottom and a third with a safety bar to secure the neck. Bow hangs from cushioned hook out of harm’s way, behind the instrument and off the floor. The open stand is 21″ across and uses 24″ front-to-back if placed to access the bow hook. Weighs 8.2 lbs. This is the most varnish-friendly stand because the only contact points are edges of bottom ribs, and the neck. We use these in the shop, and they are stable — but avoid placing in precarious places.
Thick, high-quality microfiber cloth by Bam. Perfect for wiping down cello, bow, strings after use. Medium size ($16) is 30 cm x 40 cm (11.75″ x 15.75″). Just wash with soap and water, air dry.
