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.
10 mm Cube Acoustics endpin
The Cube Acoustics 10mm tuned alloy endpin weighs ~386g, is 23.5″ long. The extra length allows for more rod resonating in the cello. Variations in height of cellist, body length and contours of cello yield different results in sound. As far as the tonal enhancements you will experience, you simply have to try it and gauge its performance for yourself. The endpin will tarnishfrom brass tone over time and it can be left to a natural brown patina. If you want to polish it, recommended is 0000 steel wool, brass or silver polish. If your current fitting does not fit a 10mm rod, we offer New Harmony Music fittings in both straight bore and 6-degree angle.
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.
New Harmony Rubber Tip
Rubber tip with plastic liner specifically designed to fit 8 and 10mm New Harmony heat-hardened steel endpin tips. If you have a NHM steel carbide replaceable tip, with the hex collar, there is a version for this! Package of 2
