The DUROD cello endpin is an alternative to pure carbon fibre endpins. This product contains a brass cylinder along its entire length, which gives it much more body than conventional carbon fibre tubes.

Characteristics of the DUROD cello endpin
The Korean company DUROD quickly became known as a manufacturer of cello endpins. Using their know-how in composite materials, they have developed two models of endpins including this one. This heavier version features a brass rod to offer stature to the tone of the cello.
- Length of the endpin to the tip: 520mm
- Firstly, they are within the average weight for an endpin. This will ultimately not add any extra burden if you have a standard endpin.
- Secondly, they bring a very interesting sound, which could be suitable for your cello.
Luthier’s opinion on the DUROD cello endpin
DUROD offers an alternative to other cello endpins, with a design that stands out from the crowd. Don’t be fooled by its carbon appearance, as it is in fact only the outer layer. Indeed, inside is a brass cylinder that adds weight and sound characteristics to the whole. With this substantial addition of brass, this model is very different from the lighter version.
