This foldable End Pin Stand is for the NS Design line of Double Basses. It is made of chrome-plated steel and features a padded waist support that 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 5 lbs. and fits easily in the instrument's padded gig bag. We recommend that you purchase the Conversion Kit with this endpin stand in order to "park" the instrument on the Tripod Stand.
