Bech Magnetic Mute
Beck Magnetic Mute. The benefit of this design is low rattle. The magnetic portion secures the mute firmly against the tailpiece when not in use. Other Mutes can buzz when not in use. Fits 4/4 Cello.
Metal Practice Mute
For the ultimate in sound reduction. You can feel the extra resistance in the bow, as this product essentially increases the mass of the bridge considerably. As a result, it's not recommended that a person spend a lot of time practicing with a mute, because the player's technique can be altered by trying to overwork the instrument.
This is the style of mute used historically. It's effect is somewhere between a modern orchestra mute, and a practice mute.
Decorated with a Celtic knot pattern.
Ultra Rubber Practice Mute
Compared to the metal mute, this product is not as quiet, but has a warmer tone, which is more pleasing to most players. Also, it's safer for the instrument, as the metal mute is slippery and heavy, and if dropped on the instrument can cause varnish damage.
End Pin Rests
Xeros Endpin Anchor
Failsafe function. Works on any surface. The D Ring attaches to the leg of your chair. Adjustable strap length for any size player, or any length of end pin.
Wolf Endpin Tip
Attaches to the tip of your endpin rod. For any size instrument.
Super Sensitive Stoppin'
Rubberized material is very sticky on all surfaces, so long as you keep it clean. Rinsing with water is all it takes to keep this product working very well. This is one of the products we recommend over others to customers in our showroom. For any size instrument
Also known as Black Hole, or Dycem. Gummy rubber bottom material is very good at sticking to most any surface. A small lip around the edge creates a suction, for extra strength hold. You might have to kick this end pin rest to get it off the floor! Keep it clean of dust and it will work very well.
Gewa Endpin Tip
Attaches to your existing end pin. Precision-machined, high carbon steel. Super Sharp tip will not need sharpening for years. May damage floors, so use with caution. Some players have actually been able to stick this tip into hard surfaces such as granite.
Mounts inside your case for consistent, convenient protection. Releases the correct amount of moisture automatically. Distilled water is recommended for longest life of the product. It's easy to know when you need to add water, because the container shrinks when nearly empty. The Case "Plus" model is for extremely dry climates.
The original instrument humidifier. Fits in the F-Hole of the instrument. Daily filling is necessary under extremely dry conditions. Use distilled water for longer life. Includes a humidity guide, to show you when to use the dampit. 4/4-1/2 size Cellos.
Adds or removes moisture on its own (eliminates messy sponges, hoses, discs, etc.). Maintains a constant relative humidity (RH) between 40-60%—the ideal climate for wood instruments. Automatically responds to any storage environment, geographic location or change in temperature. Starter kit contains one Boveda which is suitable for Violin, Viola, Mandolin, Ukulele or other small wooden instruments. For Cello, you will need 3 Boveda.
RezX Resonance Modulator
This product is not so much a wolf eliminator as a tone adjuster. It can function as a wolf tone eliminator, but the intent is to use it to modulate the response and tone balance of an instrument by experimenting with the best placement on the body. Attaches magnetically. Felt covered, to protect varnish.
Danish Style Wolf Eliminator
Attaches to the G string behind the bridge. Changing the position modulates the effect.
Super Sensitive Wolf-Be-Gone
Similar to the Danish model, but made by Super Sensitive.
New Harmony Wolf Tone Eliminator
Available in a range of weights, to match the relative severity of a wolf tone. Attaches to the string behind the bridge, as other models, but does not have a rubber insert. The metal to metal contact allows this product to be lighter, thereby causing less dampening effect on the instrument as a whole. Image shown includes Cello and Bass models. Feel free to order several to try, and return accordingly.
Attaches to the string like others, but metal-to-metal contact makes for a stronger effect than those with rubber insert. As with other eliminators, position changes the result of the wolf tone.
Practice Aids/Hand Health
StringVision Bow Grip
Anti-fatigue bow frog cover. One size fits all 4/4 bows; Violin, Viola or Cello. Thumb indent is a comfortable location to place your thumb, and is the main feature of this product.
StringVision Key Peg Set
Contains a set of two pegs. Removable key is used for tuning like standard pegs, but offers the benefit of better neck posture. To be installed on the A and D strings.
Two per container. Covers the stick and part of the frog for extra comfort. Similar to the popular Dalco products, which are no longer available.
Gewa Bow Corrector
Attaches to the fingerboard, to create a gated path for the correct bowing plane.
Vibrations of a specific frequency and amplitude cause the instrument to become more responsive and have a mature tone. We've used this product with success in our shop for years. On many instruments the results are positive.
Premium wheel assembly that fits on any case which has built-in wheels. Attaches with nylon straps, and has a quick-release mechanism for easy removal. Anodized Aluminum construction, full spring suspension, pneumatic wheels, and choice of Red or Gray. Not compatible with cases that have no wheels built-in.
Kolstein Secretary Bib

John Pearse String Swipes
20 pads you can use to clean your strings after playing. Extends the life of your strings, especially those wound with Aluminum.
Ingles Cello Stand
Portable, stable and convenient. We suggest you use this product in a way that does not put your instrument at risk. The instrument could be knocked over, or something could fall into the instrument. The best place for your instrument is the case. However, with conscientious use, it can be safe. For example, place the stand in a corner, or away from high traffic area. Not many people use stands, but we have seen various repair jobs in our workshop over the years, related to the use of a stand.
Super Sensitive Pitch Pipe
Before electronic tuners, this is what people used. Simple but not as accurate as a tuner.
Made by Herdim in Germany. This device allows you to easily change bridges, without removing string tension from the body of the instrument. Tune the strings down slightly, then insert the jack. Raise the strings slightly, and then remove/replace the bridge.
A440 Tuning Fork
Chrome Plated, with slip cover.
Wittner Fine Tune Pegs
Wittner always gets it right with new products like these. Mechanical pegs which fit the existing peg holes of your instrument. Accurate tuning, without the use of fine tuners. Professional installation recommended. Three sizes available, depending on the size of the pegs currently on your instrument.
Hill Peg Compound
The liquid alternative to Hill compound. The advantage of this product is that you do not have to completely remove the peg to apply it.
