NS Design CR Endpin stand for Double Bass
NS Design has cleverly designed their instruments with several options for playing.
Their larger instruments (including all of the CR/EU Basses, NXT and WAV basses and BassCello models) use a universal mount which is compatible with a variety of stands and strap systems for maximum flexibility.
- The CR/EU model basses generally come with the heavy duty tripod stand (Except the CRT Traditional Model, which comes with an endpin instead).
- The OMNI Bass (aka BassCello) models come with the “Boomerang” strap system, a special wearable design that was developed for that instrument.
- The NXT and WAV4 Bass come with a Tripod stand as well, but it’s a less expensive, lighter-duty stand without some of the adjustability features of the nicer CR model.
On this page you can purchase the endpin, as well as add-ons like a holding stand and the NS Design conversion kit (more info below). More NS Bass accessories — like the strap system and the tripod stand — are linked below in the “related products” section.
ENDPIN STAND – The collapsible End Pin Stand for the NS Design line of Double Basses is made of steel, and attaches to the instrument in the same manner as the stock Tripod Stand. An adjustable waist support allows the player to “lean into” the instrument; adjustments for the pin can be made in all directions, so that the instrument balances perfectly against the body without any support from the left hand. The End Pin Stand weighs 2.2 kg (5 lb) and fits easily in the instrument’s padded gig bag. Can be used with the CR, EU, NXT and WAV4 model basses. The endpin is available in a black finish (as shown) only; the chrome finish you may have seen in photos elsewhere was discontinued by NS Design several years ago.
