An industry standard for cellists, these endpins come in several varieties. They are a favorite in our shop, and we use them on many of our cellos. Online, we sell two varieties:
- 8mm - 20" Solid Core with Carbide Tip and Removable Rubber Cap
- 10mm - 20" Solid Core with Carbide Tip and Removable Rubber Cap

from New Harmony:
Our carbon fiber end pins for cellos are manufactured in two diameters. Most of the carbon fiber end pins we sell are 10 mm, although some cellists prefer our 8 mm diameter. If an end pin longer than 20 inches is required, we recommend our 10 mm diameter carbon fiber end pins because they are stiffer than the 8 mm diameter carbon fiber end pin. Longer end pins can be ordered in 24 and 28 inch lengths (28 inch often used with the angled fitting). The 8 mm carbon fiber end pin is slightly more flexible than a steel rod. Both our 8 and 10 mm end pins can be used in fittings that originally used hollow steel or aluminum end pins. However, the thumb screw used in many of these fittings presses directly against the surface of the steel rod. If the thumb screw in these fittings is tightened excessively it will eventually damage the surface of a carbon fiber end pin. With care, a carbon fiber end pin can be used for years in a standard cello end pin fitting. Weight for the 10mm solid rod is 2.3oz and the hollow tube is 1.6oz including the tip.
