Overview

The NXT Series 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.

The NXT 5-String Electric Double Bass has a ¾ sized solid maple body and neck, and a graduated ebony fingerboard for 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.

The on-board Polar Pickup System is an exciting new dimension in string instrument performance that offers powerful dynamics and rich full sound. Two separate mounted transducers beneath the adjustable bridge offer unlimited expressive potential. Each pickup is specialized for a specific task. A convenient switch gives you the choice to select a 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 provide plenty of overhead for the ultimate sound without cumbersome batteries.

NXT Double Basses can be strung with electric or traditional acoustic strings, allowing the player to select from a wide range of set-up options, 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.
Includes a self-supporting tripod stand with full adjustments for height and angle, and a padded gig bag that holds the stand and also has a pocket for a bow.

Great Value and Shipping Service!

By Dave Arasim

from Bellevue, WA

This is a beautiful instrument! I can hardly take my hands or eyes off it, a work of art... It came set up perfectly. The tuner machines seem to be a good quality too. I haven't tried arco style yet or the toggle setting for arco. Pizz-style Rock/Blues and Jazz thumping is great. Killer sustain and wonderful action. Low B string will shake the paint off the neighbor's house so be careful! I'm a veteran electric bass player and this is my first foray in crossing over to fretless bass, upright bass config., 5-string bass, and longer-scale neck all at once. It has been fairly easy so far; and I'm getting great chops already after only a few weeks with it. I would go 5-star on my rating, except the shipped strings are pretty light gauge and a bit anemic as a result. I hate throwing a new set away, but I must gauge up! I also don't understand why any $1500 instrument would ship in a 'gig bag'. Would it be too much trouble for NS Design to bug someone to make a hard shell case for this thing? But don't worry about all that, this is an awesome instrument, flawless workmanship, sweet eye candy. Shipping was a breeze and delivered in time, and as promised.
