Our classical endpin has a wooden « pear » and a carbon fiber rod.  It is equipped with a tungsten carbide tip, very hard, always sharp.
The carbon rod, much more rigid, and three times lighter than steel rod, reduces the weight of the cello of about 130 grams.

If you prefer, we also have in stocks two types of titanium rods: one full rod, and one openwork rod, lighter than the full rod.
The two « baroque » endpins have a maximum of 41 cm length, take down in two removable parts.
