Otto Musica endpin in titanium
The main advantage of this spade is that it is massively made of metal, in fact, of titanium. It is a very interesting material to create cello endpin, because even if its structure is very resistant, it remains about 40% lighter than steel. It is also very resistant to deformation and has very interesting acoustic properties as an alternative to other available metals.
It exists in two diameters, 8mm and 10mm, which will allow you to equip it on almost all the endpin cone on the market. Otherwise, they work very well with the aluminum BENDER endpin cone, which hold the 10mm diameter spikes.
The tip, which is removable and replaceable, can also be sharpened should it become dull. For this, a tap on a grindstone in the workshop will do the trick.

The luthier’s advice
If you are looking for a good compromise between weight and tone, this endpin will do the job perfectly. It is much lighter than steel models and still affordable.
On the other hand, if you are looking to protect the tip or your floor, the use of a endpin stop is recommended.
