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.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome bass!"
Overall: I finally bought this bass after looking at it for almost a year. I had been worried about the quality and playability for a long time, which is why I kept deliberating. Well, lemme tell you, if you are like me and have been going back and forth about getting one of these - don't wait any longer. They are amazing and easy to play and make the switch from a standard 34" or 35" long-scale bass to the 40"+ scale of this bass. The lower notes take a little getting used to - but within a single day of practicing my scales on this bass, I felt confident enough to try it at our Saturday night services at my church. And it sounded beautiful for worship music. I even got a bow, and am teaching myself how to bow on it. Oh - and if you are torn between the four and the five string versions - get the five string! That low B is just awesome to hear and feel on this bass. I absolutely love this bass now, and haven't touched one of my electrics since I got this bass from Zzounds two weeks ago!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
