How it works
The Grip-Foot Basic Edition consists of two main components: a solid plate for securing your instrument in place and a highly adhesive and long lasting hood that can be easily replaced once it wears out.
The lamellar structure was developed together with the Swiss Institute of Polymer Nanotechnology and creates maximum adhesion to any surface through a gecko-inspired micro lamella technology. The lamella hood adheres even on dusty floors. Unlike classic silicone surface or rubber feet, which only adhere well to clean or rough floors, dirt and dust can disappear between the lamellae, allowing enough friction to still adhere onto the surface.
The material of the hood, a thermoplastic elastomer, is manufactured in Germany. It is subject to the strictest controls and safety regulations and is dermatologically tested. Both parts can be easily separated by the customer and then returned to us for recycling. Together, we can also make a contribution to the careful use of energy and materials.
The DOLFINOS Cello Grip-Foot was - like all our other products - developed in several R&D projects involving scientists (e.g. the Institute of Polymer Nanotechnology, Switzerland), musicians, students, pedagogues, luthiers, designers and cutting edge manufacturers in Switzerland.
The development of this ground-breaking equipment for cello, was inspired by the fact, that children are often not allowed to play with the original spiky endpins and therefore must play with these unflattering round rubber protectors. Further, stability when in the very beginning of the learning process is crucial, more stability allows one to focus solely on learning the basics.
