Now's the time to get downright upright

By dvb

Comments about NS Design WAV 4 Electric Upright Bass Guitar:

I've been wanting to add an upright to my arsenal for quite awhile, but just haven't been able to find the proper convergence of price, features and quality - until now. Let me state up front that the WAV 4 doesn't sound exactly like an acoustic upright, but it doesn't sound like a "big fretless" bass either (unlike certain other inexpensive electric uprights I tried.) Spend some time with it, tweak your EQ, hone your techniques (the upright requires a totally different approach than a bass guitar), and you can add a solid upright vibe to your repertoire - you can even bow it with good results. There are certainly better electric uprights out there, including NS Design's own CR series and the incomparable Eminence, but for under $1,000, this is it.

NS Design Wave 4 Bass

By Bobby

from Hicksville NY

Comments about NS Design WAV 4 Electric Upright Bass Guitar:

It was a long wait to get it but it plays well. I don't understand why NS didn't use an active preamp.Like a fishman. Out of the box it sounds very weak. But the preamp in my mixing board and a Boss GEB-7 Eq it truely sounds amazing. Learning to use a bow is another story. But it does sounds great with the bow.
