Whether you’re a beginner cellist or a seasoned professional, you need to get yourself these accessories and tools! Your collection of cello accessories is a treasure chest of essentials that ensure your musical journey remains harmonious and hassle-free. Let’s dive in!

1. Soundbrenner’s wearable metronomes

The Soundbrenner Core and Pulse vibrating metronomes offer a revolutionary way to enhance your cello practice. Instead of the usual audio clicks, these devices allow you to feel the rhythm with vibrations seven times stronger than the average smartphone. The user-friendly app lets you easily customize rhythmic elements such as BPM, time signature, and accents.

Whether you strap it to your wrist, arm, or ankle, the versatility of these metronomes ensures that you physically feel each beat. Additional features like precision tuning, dB meters, and smart notifications make these metronomes indispensable accessories for every cellist.

2. Cello mute 

A cello mute is an essential accessory for controlling your instrument’s volume, allowing for more nuanced dynamics and enabling you to practice quietly when needed. Having a mute on hand gives you the flexibility to adapt to different performance settings, whether you’re playing in a small chamber ensemble or a large orchestra, ensuring optimal sound quality.

Compact and lightweight, a cello mute takes up minimal space in your cello accessories kit, so it’s always there when you need it, preventing last-minute scrambles before a performance or practice session.

3. Minuendo lossless earplugs

Minuendo lossless earplugs are an essential accessory for cellists focused on auditory health without compromising sound quality. They are the world’s first-ever variable passive Hi-Fi earplugs. These earplugs feature patented membrane technology and micrometre precision craftsmanship, eliminating the frequency degradation common in foam earplugs.

A flat frequency response ensures natural, clear sound, placing them on par with custom-moulded options. Notably, these earplugs offer stepless adjustments, allowing users to manually adjust noise reduction levels between -7dB and -25dB. With an extensive range of ear tips and a magnetic locking system, Minuendo earplugs are versatile and practical for any musical setting.

4. Endpin stop 

An endpin stop is essential for any cellist, acting as a reliable anchor point for your cello during performances or practice sessions. It provides excellent stability, preventing unwanted slipping and movement. Made from durable materials, it easily attaches to various floor types, allowing you to focus solely on your music. Its compact size makes it a perfect addition to your cello accessories kit.

6. Bow

Your bow and cello are like two peas in a pod. Keep your bow securely in place, ideally in a dedicated bow holder within your cello case. A well-maintained bow is essential for producing those melodious notes.

7. Rosin

Rosin is like magic dust. It is the secret behind a bow’s grip on the strings. Make sure it’s always there in your cello accessories kit, ready to rejuvenate your bow’s magical powers.


8. Wolf eliminator 

Wolf eliminators are an essential accessory for cellists seeking to refine their sound quality. These small, easy-to-install devices are designed to suppress wolf tones, those undesirable, howling sounds that can occur on certain notes.

By attaching a wolf eliminator to your cello’s string, you enhance tonal clarity and achieve a more harmonious sound, allowing you to focus on your performance rather than unwanted noise. A must-have for any serious cellist.
