Wittner Ultra Tailpiece
Wittner composite tailpiece has integrated fine tuners and comes with a tail cord. Changing strings is easy because the parts you need to thread are on the front of the tailpiece. An excellent replacement for old ebony tailpieces with bulky add-on fine tuners. Tailpiece for 7/8 and 4/4 size cellos is 235 mm in length. Fractional sizes can be ordered.
Angled Fitting w/ 10mm Endpin NHM
This set from New Harmony Music includes a composite fitting and a solid 10mm carbon fiber rod, 20″ long. It is very stable when extended. The hole in the fitting is bored at a 6-degree angle, so your cello will sit slightly more horizontal. Cellists who have tried instruments with this setup find it very comfortable. The diameter on the composite fitting is 27.5 mm. The tip on this endpin is heat-hardened steel and can be resharpened.
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!!!!
8 mm Carbon Fiber Endpin Set NHM
The 8mm NHM endpin is solid carbon fiber with a heat-hardened steel tip, 20″ long and comes with the matching composite fitting which tightens with a collar rather than putting pressure of a screw tip against the rod. Fittings are available in 27.5 and 25.5mm so you need to know the size the opening in your cello when placing your order. Protective rubber cap for the extremely sharp tip is included and extras may be purchased.
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.
