Overview

Designed by Ned Steinberger and made in the Czech Republic which has a long-held reputation for the highest-quality upright basses. In its June 2000 issue, Bass Player magazine, citing its impeccable craftsmanship, stated, "This bass plays so well, in fact, that upright players may find it plays too easily." It features a solid rock maple neck and body with a flamed maple face. The neck has a traditional profile and is fitted with a Macassar ebony fingerboard. Electronics are state of the art. An active 18V hum-canceling preamp with volume, bass EQ, and treble EQ controls is wired to both a Polar„¢ bridge-mounted piezo and an EMG magnetic pickup. Comes with a foldable chromeplated tripod stand, a padded Cordura bag for the bass, and an interior bag for the tripod stand.

awesome bass

Comments about NS Design CR-5M 5-String Electric Double Bass:

A great substitute for an upright bass. I travel alot and needed an upright that I can easily travel with. The sound of the bass can easily be managed to a point where it will sound as if you are playing an actual acoustic upright. Very comfortable when playing and has great sound while bowing. This is a bass where you will get what you paid for.
