    NS Design NXT5 5-String Upright Electric Double Bass (with Gig Bag) Product Description

    The NS Design NXT5 5 String Double Bass opens up a horizon for the serious bassist looking to play a great instrument on a limited budget. These instruments, crafted in the Czech Republic by the makers of the renowned CR Series, exemplify flawless workmanship at an incredible value.

    Features

    - Crafted in the Czech Republic by the makers of the renowned CR Series
    - Passive electronics deliver unlimited overhead for ultimate sound without cumbersome batteries
    - Solid maple body and neck, together with the graduated Richlite fingerboard, deliver a rich, full tone
    - Adjustable bridge and truss rod allow for low, fast action
    - Includes a self-supporting tripod stand with full adjustments for height and angle

    Polar Pickup System

    Pizzicato and arco techniques have almost unlimited expressive potential, thanks to the Polar Pickup System. A convenient switch allows selection of the traditional arco mode for percussive attack and dynamic bowed response, or pizzicato mode for a smooth, sustained tone. Equipped with single volume and tone controls, the passive electronics deliver unlimited overhead for ultimate sound without cumbersome batteries.

    Construction

    The solid maple body and neck, together with the graduated Richlite fingerboard, deliver a rich, full tone that rings true for every note. Asymmetrical fingerboard relief facilitates an even 'growl' from the higher strings and a clear, powerful lower register. The adjustable bridge and truss rod allow for low, fast action, or for higher string settings that encourage the traditional acoustic player to 'dig in' with gusto.

    NS Electric Strings and most traditional acoustic strings fit all NS Double Basses, allowing the player to select from a wide range, each with a unique sound and feel. In combination with the easy adjustment of basic set-up parameters, the NXT Series Bass is adaptable to many different styles of music.

    The NXT5 double bass brings world-class design and craftsmanship to a surprisingly affordable price range. With a visual appearance as striking as its sound, the roadworthy NXT5 is an exciting and reliable partner for the most demanding performance career.
