I have been reading about bent endpins on this site and now Im interested. I have known about the idea for a little while but I have never played on one. I saw a video clip (I believe it was posted on here) of Rabbath and at the very end of it he goes into the difference of his stance verses the more "common" stance and I realized that it might be what I was trying to do when I started sitting on a very low stool, almost cello like. I have started to stand again just because I feel that the bass just sounds better for me when standing but I miss the looseness I had in my left arm while seated. Long story short, I read on here that some people have made there own endpins, what angle did you have them bent at and how? I also saw some posts about eggpins and labrore (sp?) endpins. I know the eggpin is expensive and the other pin involves drilling into the bass, any preferences? Anything like the eggpin that is a little cheaper? And finally, can some one with any bent endpins on there bass post a couple pictures of them, I can't seem to find any and I still don't completely get how they look and fit on the bass. Thanks for any help.
