IMPORTANT NEWS: We are here! You can order with confidence.

The COVID-19 pandemic has people understandably highly concerned. With abundant cautionary procedures, the bassists at Gollihur Music are still maintaining our normal (online) business hours and shipping out orders every weekday.

Since we are not a "bricks and mortar" store, we are not affected by mandatory retail closures. There are just two of us here at the shop, and we have temporarily put a halt to in-person appointments to limit any chance of exposure. We are taking appropriate measures to protect ourselves and our customers from any possible infection. We're confident that we can continue to provide you with your bass needs through this complex time.

Do note that some of our suppliers have been suspending or limiting operations, though, so some products may be a little less available. But we are well stocked with the bass-ics!

For years, we've hosted an FAQ for Bob's crafty two-piece solution to replace the rubber endpin cap on a Kay or Engelhardt 1/2" endpin. Although we also stock economy rubber endpin caps, some folks need something a lot more durable for the long haul. So we've been regularly asked for years to stock the parts necessary to put this solution into practice, and now we have finally done it - here's Bob's solution, served to you on a silver platter!

In the package, you will get:
  1. a 1/2" (13mm) Vinyl Tip Cover
  2. a 5/8" (16mm) Rubber Foot
  3. Instructions
Putting it together is quite simple; first, slip the slim vinyl 1/2" tip on the pin until it seats firmly. Then force the 5/8" rubber tip over it, as shown in the photo.

That's it! Simple and effective. Bob's been using this combo on his bass for over a decade, and it's still holding up great.

Tips for your tip:
  • If you have a contemporary Engelhardt, the endpin may have a crossbar that prevents you from losing the pin inside the bass, as shown in the photo at right. Consider using pliers to remove that pin (if it's stuck, you can cut or grind it off) so you can put the pointy end inside the bass and the flat end outside. Since there will be no point jabbing at the inside of the rubber tip, it will last a lot longer.
  • Alternatively, some metal washers or a metal disk can be placed inside the tip so the sharp point won't pierce the rubber tip.
