Gemini Carbon Fiber Clamps
NEW! Gemini Carbon Fiber Adjustable Throat Clamp
Gemini Carbon Fiber Adjustable Throat Clamp Gemini is excited to offer a completely new type of adjustable carbon fiber clamp. This clamp differs from any other in that the arms slide on a solid carbon fiber support plate, thus allowing the user to decide the length of the clamp arms to fit the application. The use of carbon fiber provides an extremely lightweight clamp ideal for luthiers, fine wood workers, and anyone else who is concerned about the weight of heavy steel clamps damaging the piece, but still require the high stiffness of the metal clamp. Adjusting the clamp arms is as simple as loosening the support plate screw, sliding the arms in or out to the desired position, and then retightening the screw. It takes only seconds to have unlimited flexibility, all in one of the lightest, strongest clamps available. Maximum throat depth is 7" with a height of 2".

Gemini Carbon Fiber Clamps
1/3 the weight of a comparable metal clamp!

Gemini Carbon Fiber Clamps are specifically designed to replace the heavy steel clamps traditionally used by luthiers in the creation and repair of stringed instruments. Often when assembling violin or cello bodies, for example, multiple clamps are used to maintain even pressure across the bonding surfaces. Unfortunately, standard steel clamps can put a great deal of weight load on the parts. Lightweight plastic clamps are available; however, they are weak and often unable to provide the necessary clamping force.

In contrast, Gemini carbon fiber clamps provide substantial clamping force, yet weigh less than one third of a comparable steel clamp. For the luthier or fine wood-worker, this design provides the stiffness of metal at the weight of plastic. Clamps also provide an adjustable lower pad to allow more precise positioning. Available in depths of 3", 5" and 8" with a height of 1 5/8".

3� Depth (Violins/Violas) $57.50 USD

5� Depth (Cellos) $67.00 USD

8� Depth (Basses)$75.25 USD


As an add-on to our carbon fiber clamp, the vertical clamp support is able to slide along the clamp arms, and by tightening the pad against the piece, provides support for the clamp. This clamp support prohibits the clamp from sagging under its own weight, a common problem with longer clamps.
