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″.
Boveda Starter Kit for cello (Large)
Boveda is a two-way system which controls humidity in your case whether it needs to be added or absorbed. We were slow to offer this product because its use in cello cases seemed a bit awkward, and buying replacement packets is a commitment. But we now have cellists needing the two-way management system for their finnicky cellos. This starter kit includes the soft pockets into which the Boveda packets are placed (after removing them from their plastic wrapper). Packets may remain effective for 2-6 months, and you can tell when they need replacement by how rigid they get. Packet contents are natural salts and pure water. Cellos require four packets to do the job, and remember to keep your case closed as exposure to the air will shorten their life. When unopened, the packets can be stored for two years. You can order additional packets when we ship your starter kit, or as you need them in the future.

Stringvision Bow Grip
The SV bow grip is a soft, pliable rubber that slides (more like putting on a wet bathing suit) from the screw end 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. A very popular item here. *Note: If the thumbnail is not kept short, you can wear through the rubber quickly. Also, repeated installation and removal, or rolling the rubber back on itself can lead to material failure.
Oasis Plus with refill kit
Oasis Plus is a case humidifier designed for cellos. 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 instantly see when you need to add water. Easy and 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.
The ToneRite helps accelerate the play-in of a new cello, or one that has been sitting unused for a long period of time. We use a few in the shop to help keep cellos lively when they’ve not had a lot of play time. Cellists who own multiple instruments also find it helpful if they neglect one on occasion.
