Upright Bass ENDPIN
This is a very nice endpin, and a worthy replacement for your bass! The shaft is made of a nicely polished SOLID steel, with incremental "divots" so that the brass hardware can securely hold the position without slipping. This endpin includes a threaded heavy-duty rubber foot. The pin is 10mm, by far the most common contemporary size. The shaft is about eighteen inches long.
We can also sell the endpin with the rubber cap separately, for those who have lost their 10mm endpin and don't need the replacement plug and thumbscrew assembly.
When purchased as a complete set, you have your choice of two different plug sizes, to more closely match the size of the assembly you're replacing. It's better for it to be just a touch larger than the hole, so you can adjust either the plug or the opening in your endblock (with sanding/reaming) to fit firmly and confidently.
Here are the two plug sizes we currently stock:
- Larger Plug Size: Tapers from 1.38" to 1.25" over 2.3" (35.1mm to 32mm over 58.8mm) from the stop to the tip.
- Smaller Plug Size: Tapers from 1.3" to 1.19" over 2." (32.9mm to 30.1mm over 50.6mm) from the stop to the tip.
Please note that hardware and other parts may sometimes differ slightly in appearance, as we sometimes source this from different suppliers - but they are always of the same excellent quality.
Great experience with my first order here. Placed Monday. Arrived Wednesday. Replacement end pin fit perfectly and the on site advice allowed me to pick the correct items. Had it installed in minutes, before the holiday and able to adjust the bass for my height. Also want to thank Mark for the help he gave me about strings when I first arrived at this site. Very helpful. I'm "borrowing" a used set of Obligatos from my teacher to help me decide. Will definitely send my business your way based on experience so far.
