Stringvision Posture Peg Replacement Key
Replacement key for Posture Peg
ConCarbo French Style Twill
ConCarbo carbon fiber tailpieces are new to Cellos2Go, and are just resting on a cello for these pictures! This is the French style, in twill which displays the CF weave. The model with no fine tuners (not pictured) is the least expensive ($135) and if you have Pegheds installed or use gut strings, this would be a good choice. The model with mini-lever fine tuners ($159) requires threading the top of the string through a hole in the back of the tailpiece, then up to the peg. The model with titanium fine tuners ($199) provides front access for string installation. For more information from the maker, visit their site here.
Angled Fitting for 10mm Endpin (NHM)
Endpin fitting is composite/stainless with thumb screw. Cone diameter only comes in 27.5mm to accommodate the angle of the hole for a 10mm rod. This allows use of a straight rod,angled downward 6 degrees. Not as severe as the Stahlhammer’s 25 degrees. Your cello sits more horizontal, f-holes facing more upward, and also may make the pegs sit more comfortably in relation to your neck. Price is for the fitting only. You can use any 10mm rod, or purchase the NHM 10mm rod (listed separately).
Self-Adjusting Bridge – Aubert
Adjustable bridges are not ideal for setting up a cello, but they can be a lifesaver in an emergency when there is no luthier or repair person close by. These bridges are available in 4/4 and fractional sizes, but not a range of diameters. They have pivoting feet since cello tops vary in curvature. That means you will be able to set your cello up, but it is not likely the bridge will be optimal in relation to your sound post and bass bar. They are available in low, medium and high so you can try to get a suitable height for playing. Handy to have available at summer music camps or if you travel.
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.
