Product Description

The NS Design NXT4 Double Bass opens up a new 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.

NS Design NXT4 Electric Double Bass 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 ebony 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 ebony 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 a 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 NXT4 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 NXT4 is an exciting and reliable partner for the most demanding performance career.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It's made in the Czech Republic. And considering the Czechs have been making great acoustic double basses for a few hundred years I figured it was worth a shot. I'm so happy with my purchase. It was almost in perfect tune right out of the box!
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
There an not many features. Just two knobs: tone and volume. As well as a two position switch for archo or pizz. But if have a good EQ I think you will be all set. It also comes with a tripod stand and gig bag. Both very nice.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Its very responsive and very close to an acoustic tone.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
I chose the sunburst. Beautiful.
