    <p>The combination of aluminum and brass ensures a significantly reduced weight of the clamps and enhances their versatility for use in sensitive areas, such as the resonance chambers of antique violins and violas. For example, while a standard brass crack clamp with a capacity of 280 mm weighs 100 g, our version with aluminum jaws and screw heads weighs only 82 g. Rubber-coated pressure screws and rubber pads minimize the risk of damage to the instruments being repaired. The top-quality birch plywood used in crafting the La Stabile violin cradle is sourced from the finest available in Italy, ensuring durability, precision, and flawless operation.</p> <p>Key features:</p> <p>-Significantly reduced weight</p> <p>-Rubber jaws and pressure discs to prevent damage</p> <p>-Durability and precision</p> <p>-Herdim crack clamps</p> <p>-Made in Europe</p> <p>These clamps are designed for repairing cracks on the resonance chamber and the back of musical instruments.

    <p>These clamps feature all requirements for repair clamps used on fine and fragile structures:</p> <p>High stiffness versus low weight - especially of the clamps with large jaw openings. These two contradictory requirements are nicely combined with this Herdim achievement. Unique strutted design fulfills these requirements the best.</p> <p>The movable parts use the traditional movable brass plate and a precise brass spindle with knurled handle. The lower pad is adjustable in height and thus enhances the scope of application. The brass plate and movable lower pad can optionally be equipped with self-adhesive rubber cork paddings. To protect varnished surfaces, special silicone pads are available as accessories. Steel body with black anodized coating.</p> <p>Very stiff and low weight</p> <p>Adjustable lower pad with optional rubber cork padding</p> <p>Precise action</p> <p>less </p> <p>Material : Steel</p> <p></p> <p></p>
