Carbon Fiber Upright Bass ENDPIN

Why make an endpin of carbon fiber? CF has a high strength-to-weight ratio, while having a much lower density than steel. So this high-quality endpin assembly has the strength and rigidity of a standard steel endpin, which is usually much heavier. The full length of the pin is 18.5 inches, and the screw on rubber ball foot adds 1 inch to its height capability. The pin itself is 10mm, and it has a screw-on rubber ball cap to protect floors from the pointy end (which can be used in the traditional way - when permitted - to "stake into" a stage floor to couple with the floor.)

The unique tightening mechanism gives it incredible holding power and stability. The receiver assembly is a light and very strong composite material, while the shaft is made of carbon fiber. The assembly also has a channel for your tailgut (tailpiece cable) to guide through. Professional installation is strongly recommended.

The "plug" portion measures 30.4mm (1.2") at the wide end, tapering to 28.8mm (1.13"). It will need to be installed into a hole that closely matches that taper.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The thumbscrew assembly in this device exerts pressure around the endpin shaft, rather than against it. It is not recommended to use the carbon fiber shaft with your existing endpin receiver (instead of installing the one that comes with the shaft); the simple thumbscrew assembly common to most endpin receivers will likely pierce the fibers and split them, which, with regular use, will damage the shaft in short order.
