"Okay, so if I've got the NS End Pin Stand... what am I supposed to do with my bass when I'm not playing it?"
The NS End Pin Conversion Kit allows an NS Double Bass, Cello or Omni Bass equipped with the NS End Pin Stand to be placed securely onto the NS CR Tripod Stand so that the instrument remains free-standing, and in the playing position. This option allows the player to enjoy the onstage mobility of the End Pin Stand, the stability of the Tripod Stand and provides a place to store the bass when not in use.
End Pin Stand + End Pin Conversion Kit + CR Tripod Stand = Maximum Flexibility, Support & Performance Freedom
The NS End Pin Conversion Kit is designed exclusively for use in conjunction with both the NS End Pin Stand and NS CR Tripod Stand (NB : It cannot be used with the standard NXT tripod stand).
All NS Design CR and EU Series Double Bass & Cello models are supplied complete with the heavy duty CR Tripod Stand as standard (except for the NS CRT Double Bass which ships with the NS End Pin Stand).
Designed for easy and quick assembly, the NS Design End Pin Stand Conversion Kit - comprising head and foot pieces - attaches to the Tripod Stand as shown above.
The U-shaped head piece screws into the top of the Tripod Stand using the large mounting bolt. The small knob can be screwed in to keep the end pin stand in place.
The foot is installed by inserting the small aluminum hook into the hole at the bottom of the Tripod Stand . The foot must be tilted up (as shown above left) to allow entry of the hook into the stand. When the hook is all the way up into the stand, simply tilt the foot forward into its final location. Tilt it back up to remove.
