Angled "Laborie" style endpin

This endpin style was originally designed by Christian Laborie in collaboration with Francois Rabbath, and is designed to alter the angle of your instrument whilst playing, bringing the top table and strings closer to the player, and removing the need for the player to support the weight of the instrument with the left hand. Many players find this endpin significantly  improves the ergonomics of their instrument, and this translates into better performance and sound. 

The lightweight carbon fibre endpin manufactured by New Harmony Music is installed in a small tapered hole drilled into the bottom block, and can be installed or removed as required. Thousands of bassists worldwide are using this system. Come and try a bass with an angled endpin and feel the difference!

Drilling a hole in your endpin block does not in most cases affect the value of your instrument. Also available an adjustable-length model.

Anima Nova Adjustable Sound Post

The position and fit of your soundpost is one of the most critical adjustments you can make in a double bass. Traditionally, luthiers have fit soundposts made of spruce, and trimmed them to fit in different positions and different tensions to respond to changes in humidity and instrument response.

Adjustable soundposts are now becoming more and more popular, and so I am happy to partner with Anima Nova as Australian reseller and installer of these high-end carbon-fibre soundposts that allow fine adjustments never before available. 

Players report quicker response under the bow and more centered, focused sound, increased resonance and an unparalleled ability to fine tune the instrument's sound in changing environments. 

The Anima Nova sound post is not cheap, but if your double bass is your principle tool of trade, an investment in this innovation might well be a game changer for you.

I offer a money-back guarantee if you do not like the result after a two week trial period.

Perfection Pegs for Cello

Perfection pegs are the world’s best tuning peg for cello, and are available with ebony, rosewood or ABS heads, in Swiss and Hill styles.

These pegs work in much the same way as a conventional peg, but more accurately and reliably. Turning the head of a Perfection peg tunes the string sharp or flat, with no need for fine tuners on the tailpiece. When a string is tuned to pitch, a variable-friction brake holds the gears in position against the tension of the string, with no slipping or jamming. Accurate, strong, smooth action. Stable under all conditions. 

Perfection pegs have a standard taper and fit in the same holes as standard wooden friction pegs. They have the same shape, weight and taper as a set of good ebony pegs. The pegs must be installed by a luthier.

Talk to me about how to pimp your pegs to Perfection! 

Perfection Pegs are assembled to order in Australia.
