Our product knowledge and experience is second to none. We have sourced internationally many special products, especially carbon fibre products, and stock and sell only high quality 'branded' products. We are currently narrowing our stock base, and are gradually discontinuing all 'lower end' items: We intend only to sell selected high top quality products, many not readily available anywhere else. These brands are:
- Andrea Rosin
- Bois d'Harmonie Accessories
- Klaus Bender Carbon Endpins
- Fiedler Case Accessories
- VioTech bow cushions

Please Note: We no longer will sell the cones only, we will only supply the complete part, ie the cone complete with pin fitted of whichever type you choose. These need to be professionally fitted, and we take no responsibility for cones/ pins once fitted, as they may not have been fitted correctly. The 28 mm cone may require a special reamer, of double bass size which we have, please check with your repairer that he does have the correct tools for the job. (but we do not loan out our tools) . All endpins are checked here before sending out, to ensure their smooth and proper operation. These endpins usually require special fitting which we can do for an additional charge. (We no longer supply the 'trade' with these items; retail sales only)

Cello Case Backpacks:
- Fiedler: This is the best back pack system available. It does require precise fitting, and basic DIY skills are needed, and all instructions, screws, rings etc and a template are provided in the kit. It takes between 1.5 and 2 hours to fit. This system is adjustable, and can be installed to fit the height of the player, and the entire system apart from the central mounting plate can be removed, if not in use. The back pack cushion can be easily detached to use as a wedge shaped cushion, and the pack even incorporates an endpin holder.
Price for basic backpack on its own £180, ( additional options are deluxe cushion, hip belt fitting, and a separate music pocket), plus postage, and we make no fitting charge if the case was purchased here. We do not fit the packs if the case was purchased elsewhere, but can supply the kits for self-fitting.Photos, as fitted to an Accord case, here:
Please Note: You do not need to ride a bicycle to have this fitted to your cello case!
