The endpin

Although I somehow assume most of you will play this eub while it sits /hangs in the stand, I would not deny you the possibility of taking it out of the stand, move around stage, and resting it on an endpin.
 
 

Fast & Easy

Conventional systems that fix the height of the endpin usually involve a winged nut or a screw knob: unscrew, set the hight, fasten the screw knob. I’ve always found this somewhat unpleasant, ergonomically; too much work, too time consuming.

So, I designed it the way I wanted it to be: Fast & Easy. Push the lever, which when pushed released the break on the endpin, so it can slide freely. When the lever is released again, the endpin is fixed. Done!
