How normal is using a cello rock stop?

“My cello endpin slips on almost everything. I’m a beginner, so I’m not sure if it’s normal to use a rock stop?”

Slippery endpin is an every cellist’s problem. 🙂 Using a rock stop or strap is absolutely normal and they’re useful for beginners and professionals alike. It’s better to always have one with you everywhere you go. Still, they can also slip sometimes, depending on the floor and your movements.
