Cello Saddle

The Cello Saddle is a machined component to be installed on the edge of the cello beneath the tailpiece's tailgut/loop. Its primary function is to prevent the tailgut/loop from cutting into the top/soundboard of the cello.

It's essential to note that the Cello tailpiece saddle is pre-shaped and semi-fitted. However, like most instrument replacement parts, the saddle must be tailored to fit, and it's not intended to be installed by the customer. Therefore, it's crucial to have a trained luthier install it for you.

The cello saddle is a small rectangular block made of ebony. It is located at the end of the cello, just in front of the endpin. Its primary function is to distribute the force created by string tension away from the centre of the cello and towards the endpin. This helps to relieve the pressure exerted on the cello's body. Additionally, it supports the tailgut, which is attached to the bottom of the cello.

Cello Sound Post- Raw Material (unfitted)

The soundpost of a stringed instrument is made from spruce. It has two functions - sound and structure. The soundpost carries sound from the soundboard to the back of the instrument, amplifying the sound of the strings. Correct positioning is crucial for the desired sound quality. The soundpost also provides support to the top plate, along with the bass bar. It prevents cracking of the spruce top caused by the treble foot of the bridge under the higher-sounding strings.
