Stahlhammer Endpin Carbon Fiber Cello Short
Stahlhammer Carbon Fiber Endpins are the industry standard, especially if you prefer the Tortelier-style or bent endpin. This high-quality endpin can be used at two different angles: straight (aligned with the body of the instrument), or bent at a 25 degree angle toward the floor. The point is extremely sharp (careful!), so it should work for any surface. It also stays put well with a Black Hole Endpin Stopper if you need to protect a wooden floor.
Stahlhammer Cello Endpins come recommended by top musicians including Lynn Harrell, David Finckel, and Janos Starker. The endpin will not only fit your style, but it will also help transmit your sound through the floor, making the whole room part of your instrument!
Carbon fiber endpins are the lightest endpins available, and this Stahlhammer endpin is actually under 4 1/2 ounces. It comes with instructions and parts so you can actually install it yourself! My husband and I just installed this endpin on my cello last month to help ease the pressure during my last few months of pregnancy. This style of bent-endpin also works really well for cellists with longer legs.
Stahlhammer endpins come in three different length options. This short, Stahlhammer endpin can be adjusted from 9 to 14 1/2 inches (23-40 cm). The adjustable-length rod is 5 1/2 inches. For longer lengths, you might try the Stahlhammer Medium Endpin or Stahlhammer Long Endpin.
