The biggest innovation of the RobPin is the "Bottom Block Rest"
which takes on most of the bass's weight. This eliminates most of
the typical stresses on the socket, bottom block, and pin.
As reviewed on
Once you have it adjusted to your preference, you only slip it in
and out of the socket when you are packing and unpacking the bass.
When detached, it might even fit into the accessory pocket of your
bag! The set screw in your socket needn't even be especially tight.
The weight of the bass goes onto the "Bottom Block Rest", keeping
the bracket from turning.
Height and angle adjustment:
The RobPin comes with three interchangeable rods of different
lengths, giving it a good range of height adjustment. The angle of
the pin going to the floor can be set at 25°, 35°, or
45°. If your endpin is not 10mm, then adapters are available. If
it doesn't come out of the socket, then you naturally need to remove
the holding pin, or have your luthier do it.
