      Comments about NS Design End Pin Conversion Kit:

      I see no obvious way to edit my initial review, and to comment requires that you have a Facebook account which I don't. So with apologies for a 2nd separate posting, this is my follow-up to my original review. In short, if you have the NXT tripod and you're not willing to shell-out ~$200 to replace it, do NOT buy this conversion kit. NS Design officially told me that while the NXT tripod can be modified to work with this conversion kit, doing so would void my warranty and put my bass at risk of falling over. They also strongly recommended that if I'm committed to using this support system, I should purchase the CR bass tripod to replace the one that came with my NXT4: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/orchestral-strings/ns-design-tripod-stand

      Comments about NS Design End Pin Conversion Kit:

      As noted in the other review(s) here, this does not work with the tripod which ships with the NXT models. It is designed for the tripod which ships with the CR (and probably CRT & EU) models. Unfortunately, this is mentioned nowhere on the ThinkNS web site. I've been in touch with NS Design, and they're telling me that they will work with me on this; I'll update this review when I have more information. AND finally, that all said, these pieces are solid high-quality machined metal; if this kit works with your tripod and if you can stomach what's pretty clearly a ~150% markup on materials and labor, it should be a solid investment for you.

      Comments about NS Design End Pin Conversion Kit:

      If you have the NXT bass, save your money and don't bother with this item.
      I own a brand new NXT bass and the part of this item that's supposed to work on the bottom of the stand won't work with my stand. I wish had known that before buying the kit.
      Seems to be made ok
      Since i can only use half of it, it's only worth half of what I paid for it.
