10mm PegHeds endpins
From the inventor of PegHeds, this new hybrid endpin has a carbon fiber exterior with a choice of three cores: Bronze, Brass, Copper. All feature his silicon carbide super-sharp tip. Total length 24.5″. The tonal differences are going to vary with each core, each cello, the length resonating inside the cello, your ears and personal preference . . . the usual! Please direct inquires here, Cellos2Go, not Chuck.
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.
Stahlhammer Endpin – CF
The Stahlhammer carbon fiber “bent” endpin consists of a fitting (27mm cone), and 2 telescoping rods. Loosen the thumb screw and slide out the first rod which will rotate 25 degrees or lock in the straight position. Then twist the collar to release the second rod and extend to playing length. We stock medium 10.5 – 18.5″ but can order the Short 9-14.5″ Long 11.75-20.5″. *Note: Do not overtighten or the internal nylon locking sleeve may split, requiring replacement. Read the instructions on the box!!!!
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
Stahlhammer replacement tightener
** Read to the end – new update. If you have overtightened the telescoping rod so it no longer holds, you have split the interior tightening mechanism. This is a nylon sleeve and is replaceable. Unscrew the extension rod and remove, take the tightening lock off, and gently screw the new one on. Do not overtighten when you adjust your endpin next time. Just enough to hold. ***If you read the instructions inside the box, specifically No. 8, it suggests you routinely remove the inner tube and apply a few drops of alcohol to the nylon sleeve. Apparently nylon off-gases, and produces a film which may act as a lubricant. So even if you have not put oil in the mechanism, you still need to clean this part. According to Semmy Stahlhammer, the nylon piece is strong and should not need to be replaced IF PROPERLY MAINTAINED.
