How it works
The DOLFINOS Cello Grip – Foot is the first endpin solution that enables the player complete independence from any complicated setups or constructions on different floor types.
It has one single docking element, which connects the cello to a “foot” that gives an open range of movements for the cellist, whilst simultaneously providing a safe and secure hold wherever the cello is placed on the floor.
The placing of the pin position can be easily changed whenever without having to remove or reposition the Grip-Foot. Most importantly it sticks to any kind of flooring: wood, carpet, fitted carpet, linoleum and even marble (important for when playing in a church). Even with dusty floors, thanks to the high-tech surface of the Cello Grip-Foot, based on bionic technology (gecko foot inspired micro-lamella), it will still stick! Unlike many products made of silicone or polyurethane, which lose their grip due to the dust they attract and lose their adhesivity over time, DOLFINOS Cello Grip-Foot will not slip!
Absolutely nothing must be changed to the existing set-up of the cello. Much like a shoe, you simply slide the Cello Grip-Foot onto the endpin and that’s it.
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.
