New Harmony Endpins

Getting the best sound out of your instrument is dependent upon optimising various factors. It is a continual process of refinement; studying the effect of the environment upon your instrument (heat, humidity, travel…) and making necessary adjustments, working with a luthier for tonal adjustment, and using carefully selected accessories (chin rest, rosin etc). If you are a cellist seeking to produce a fuller and more resonant sound and suspect that your endpin may be hampering your instrument's voice, New Harmony endpins are for you!

Carbon fibre endpins are preferred by many cellists, as their reduced weight and density enhance sound projection. Denser materials such as the traditionally used steel absorb more of the vibrations generated by bowing and muffle the sound. Carbon fibre endpins weigh on average 1/5 of typical steel endpins; for cellists seeking to enhance projection, this can make a very significant difference.

Here are what New Harmony users have to say:

"Wow! Just tried one or your 8mm pins this afternoon that a student of mine received. It was fantastic! I am playing on an older Italian Cello (P. Ventapane) and have been looking for ways of helping the projection and tone. Aside from a recent restoration, this end pin is the best thing yet."

 "We received the 10mm end pin you shipped (and yes, the "bottom" end is quite sharp, by the way). It's obviously true that whenever one makes a change, they wish it to be an improvement. Sometimes, one wonders if there really IS a change, or if it's just self full filling expectation. In the case of your end pin, however, my son and I really feel that there is an improvement in the "resonance" and fullness of tone, especially on the A and D. We switched the new and old pins back and forth for comparison purposes, and we both came to the same conclusion. So, consider this note a very positive response to your product."

 "I received the end pin yesterday. I was astounded in the difference in weight between your end pin and the usual steel one. Steel end pins may go the way of the dodo. Please send three more!"

 "A GREAT END PIN! My Testore says  What a lovely difference in resonance and depth of sound!!"

The endpins are available with either heat-hardened stainless steel or carbide tips.  Both are very strong and can be sharpened again and again.  The carbide tip is replaceable.  Cello endpins are available with a diameter of 8mm or 10mm; the 10mm is preferred by many players, however those using a shorter endpin or desiring a more flexible rod often choose the 8mm, which is slightly more flexible than standard metal endpins. As a general rule, those using a cello endpin longer than 20 inches should always choose the 10mm. Both 8mm and 10mm endpins can be used in fittings designed for steel or aluminium endpins, however please ensure that you do not tighten the thumb screw excessively as this will eventually damage the endpin.
