The NS CR Tripod Stand provides heavy duty, stable support for all NS Double Bass, Cello and Omni Bass models. Full height and tilt adjustments allow the player to select the ideal position, seated or standing, for maximum flexibility.
Made of heavy duty, black-finished steel, the NS CR Tripod Stand is supplied as standard issue with all NS CR and EU Double Bass & Cello models (except the NS CRT traditional style Double Bass which is supplied with the NS End Pin Stand). It can also be used with all Omni Bass models, and is compatible as an upgrade to NXT Series models (which are supplied with a different design tripod stand) and the now discontinued WAV Series Double Bass.
Care should be taken to secure the legs so that the two front legs give the widest possible stance (as shown), with the back leg be at a slight angle, so that the main post tilts back slightly.
The instrument is mounted to the stand using a large (5/16") thumb screw, which can be adjusted as desired, making sure that the weight of the bass is centred and stable on the stand.
Please note that the stand is designed to be highly adjustable, and therefore the bass can be set in many interesting positions, including horizontal. Caution! It is possible to set up the stand in an unstable position, so care should be taken to test the stability by tipping the bass so that each leg lifts slightly and ensuring that it returns securely.
The stand folds for storage and fits in the instrument's gig bag, or flight case.

NS Design has cleverly designed their instruments with several options for playing, with all NS Double Bass, Cello and Omni Bass models sharing a universal mount that is compatible with a variety of interchangeable stand and strap systems for maximum flexibility, and mobility.
In addition, the NS CR Tripod Stand can be used in conjunction with the NS End Pin Stand to "park" the instrument (using the NS End Pin Stand Conversion Kit) for ultimate flexibility in performance. (Please note that this configuration cannot be used with the NXT Tripod Stand).
