Anima Nova is the original height-adjustable sound post made out of carbon fibre. For the first time, luthiers can steplessly adjust the sound post's tension and, independently, find its perfect position. The results are superb: better playability, better projection, more focus, more overtones, quicker response, more volume. Since August 2015 more than 650 cellists have opted for the new tradition of sound, amongst others Anima Nova is installed in Prof. David Finckels (ex-Emerson String Quartet) Zygmuntowicz-Cello, Prof. Stefan Kropfitsch's Gagliano-Cello, Prof. Christian Brunnert's Greiner-Cello and Prof. István Várdai's Montagnana-Cello.
