Stretto® Humidifier with Hygrometer for Cello

Item# S1040

$77.00

In Stock

The Stretto from Switzerland is simply the most effective system for maintaining a safe and consistent humidity level in a case's interior. The Stretto bag effectively humidifies for up to two weeks. When ready to rehydrate the bag, simply re-soak in water (use distilled water for best results). Benefits to the player include an instrument safer from the risk of cracks, more consistent performance, and bow hair that does not dry and shrink (causing higher tension risking warpage or even tip breaks).

Charles Avsharian, CEO of SHAR, says about the Stretto: "I highly recommend the Stretto system to advanced players and professionals as it is without question the best humidifying system available. The humidifying bags are easy to use, and last up to two weeks without any maintenance. For those with valuable instruments and bows, I believe the Stretto system is extremely valuable for safeguarding their investment and for consistent top performance."

And Cyrus Forough, Concert Artist, Professor of Violin , Carnegie Mellon University says about the Stretto: "As in all museums protecting great works of art, the humidity must be equalized for the preservation  of such masterpieces. All instruments require similar protection, regardless of their age, we owe it to our precious investment. I heartily recommend the Stretto."

The Stretto effectively humidifies the entire case, so if the hygrometer is placed inside a pocket, its readings will still be accurate for entire case.

Moustro Mute

Item# 1303

Starting From: $5.49

In Stock

Add a touch of whimsy to your playing with this adorable mute that will put a smile on anyone's face! The Moustro mute is fully functional as well as fully adorable and works just like a two-hole tourte mute, so you can keep it on your instrument when not in use. Equally popular with beginners, teachers, and professionals. Fairly stiff to start, softens over time.

What Should I Look For in a Mute?
All string players should have at least one mute, and there are three important factors to consider. First and foremost, ease of use. How quickly can the mute be put in place or removed? How important is this to you? Orchestral players sometimes only have one measure to install or remove a mute. Secondly, sound quality. The goal of the mute is to lower the volume only, not dampen the good quality of your instrument. Regarding overall sound quality, the degree to which a mute "rattles" when not in use but still on the strings between the bridge and tailpiece is important as well. Third is aesthetics. Truth be told, many players consider the importance of overall look and feel, trying a variety of mutes to find out what works and looks best on their instrument. Fortunately, mutes are not too expensive, so this is a relatively low cost endeavor.

Stretto® Humidifier for Cello

Item# S1030

$39.00

In Stock

The Stretto from Switzerland is simply the most effective system for maintaining a safe and consistent humidity level in a case's interior. The Stretto bag effectively humidifies for up to two weeks. When ready to rehydrate the bag, simply re-soak in water (use distilled water for best results). Benefits to the player include an instrument safer from the risk of cracks, more consistent performance, and bow hair that does not dry and shrink (causing higher tension risking warpage or even tip breaks).

Charles Avsharian, CEO of SHAR, says about the Stretto: "I highly recommend the Stretto system to advanced players and professionals as it is without question the best humidifying system available. The humidifying bags are easy to use, and last up to two weeks without any maintenance. For those with valuable instruments and bows, I believe the Stretto system is extremely valuable for safeguarding their investment and for consistent top performance."

And Cyrus Forough, Concert Artist, Professor of Violin , Carnegie Mellon University says about the Stretto: "As in all museums protecting great works of art, the humidity must be equalized for the preservation  of such masterpieces. All instruments require similar protection, regardless of their age, we owe it to our precious investment. I heartily recommend the Stretto."

Humidity Advisory
Central heating, air conditioning and the dry climate parts of the country have done more damage to musical instruments than all other natural forces. There are a few absolutes to follow in order to keep your instrument in top condition and save time and money spent on repair.

1. Use the Stretto system of controlled, moisture release and electronic humidistat.
2. Keep your case closed at all times except to remove or replace the instrument.
3. Replace moisture pouches as needed (keep some spares handy).

Dycem Black Hole Cello Endpin Stop

Item# 1145

$14.95

In Stock

Made by a company that specializes in non-slip rubber products, the Black Hole Cello Stop is a simple and effective means of holding the cello in place - the smoother and harder the floor, the better it works. Just place the Black Hole in position and let the unique non-slip properties do the rest. No messing around with strings or belt straps around the chair legs!! Easily carried in the pocket or in the case.

"Floors in performance venues always seem to be harder, dustier, and slicker than normal floors; as a result, endpin anchors that have proven to be reliable to me in the past have failed me with large numbers of other people watching. This was exactly the case in a recent performance of my cello trio. I used a small circular rubber endpin stop and a Stahlhammer endpin, but despite this, when I put any amount of weight on my cello, it slipped forward with a horrible noise. In retrospect, I could have been more prepared for that situation by bringing a higher quality endpin anchor. The Xeros is my personal favorite, as it attachs to the leg of your chair and therefore cannot possibly move. It is, however, bulkier than most endpin stops, so for those looking for a more convenient and portable stop the Sure-Stop and the Black Hole are excellent choices."
- Charlie Dwyer, Cellist, SHAR Apprentice

Spector Violin Mute - Copper

Item# 1304

$5.95

In Stock

Rubber violin mute designed by violinist Fred Spector based on 45 years of experience with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. We found it very easy to use. Players can easily and quickly slide the mute up onto the bridge with very little effort and no extraneous noise. This is a great mute for orchestra players who need to be able to install their mute quickly and quietly. While not in use, the mute is held in place by the A and D strings with no buzzing or rattling.

What Should I Look For in a Mute?
All string players should have at least one mute, and there are three important factors to consider. First and foremost, ease of use. How quickly can the mute be put in place or removed? How important is this to you? Orchestral players sometimes only have one measure to install or remove a mute. Secondly, sound quality. The goal of the mute is to lower the volume only, not dampen the good quality of your instrument. Regarding overall sound quality, the degree to which a mute "rattles" when not in use but still on the strings between the bridge and tailpiece is important as well. Third is aesthetics. Truth be told, many players consider the importance of overall look and feel, trying a variety of mutes to find out what works and looks best on their instrument. Fortunately, mutes are not too expensive, so this is a relatively low cost endeavor.
