    Neck heel =bass thumb stop about € 80.-, extremely high price for that small piece of wood.
    Bass endpin stand about € 160.-, same complaint.
    Using a NS design bass without the costly adds / replacements has nothing to do with playing a double bass.

    Yep, NS is proud of their products. Frankly none are “needed”. But IF you want a NS, and IF you want the NS to be closer to playing an acoustic upright, the neck heel and endpin are welcome additions.

    Brass Brad Nail = ~$.02 (or less if you have one in your garage)

    To your point, my tripod stand did me well for a couple of years, and the OP could stay there too - MANY do, but I personally missed being able to move with the bass like I do with my own acoustic upright.

    Again YMMV. Of course this is IMHO only.
