All you need for your child's cello practice:
We also use the foldable Minimax chair (16 or 18,5 inch) available from Ebay (Safrut). You may need to order this chair as the producer makes them by hand and therefore only produces a small number of chairs each time.
These chair are very practical as you can fold them up (see picture) and carry them like a small bag.
This stool is for adults only: The Tom and Jerry - The Wild Bunch is available at magisdesign.com
A spike holder for you cello. Best choice: a simple wooden spike holder:
Together with your cello stool you need a spike holder (see picture above.). This spike holder you can order on the ALANGREGORY website.
Instead of inserting two chair legs into the loops simply tie the loops together and place the spike holder around your chair.
