Overview

The Shadow SH 965 NFX-B is a professional double bass pickup that provides absolute natural sound with zero hum. The pickup is based on the revolutionary Nanoflex-technology, that makes no compromise in preserving these features. It's built to reproduce the vibrations of your bass authentically with every move of the bow in all positions. No instrument modification was a must in developing this pickup system.

For centuries bass makers worldwide selected the best woods to make, create and build the upright bass as it sounds today. Many hours of trimming the top and the bridge are invested to create the ultimate bass sound.

Nanoflex pickups not only take the vibrations of the strings like common undersaddle pickups. Nanoflex senses the vibrations of the strings and the body of the instrument simultaneously. Due to active amplification directly at the pickup and 100% shielding of the entire system, no sound will be lost and no hum created.

100% hum and noise free

Great pick-up

By Thomas

Comments about Shadow SH 965 NFX-B Nanoflex Pickup with Preamp for Upright Bass:

Installation wasn't bad at all and sounds great. I've played through a pickup with out a preamp and it sounded horrible, the preamp really brings out the tone. There's no hum or feedback.

Great Choice

By Blind Tommy

Comments about Shadow SH 965 NFX-B Nanoflex Pickup with Preamp for Upright Bass:

I have been playing electric bass for years but in January of 2008 my wife bought me an upright bass for my birthday. At first it was like a whole other instrument but I am finally ready to do some gigs with it. I have read everything I could about upright pickups and had a hard time making a choice. I liked the looks and style of the shadow SH 965 NFX-B Nanoflex so I thought I would give it a shot. I am totaly satisfied. It was an easy install and does not loose any of the accoustic integrity when amplified. I can't wait to do my first accoustic gig. Definitly the right choice.

Shadow SH 965 NFX-B Nanoflex Pickup

By Jaycee Hartman

from tacoma WA

Comments about Shadow SH 965 NFX-B Nanoflex Pickup with Preamp for Upright Bass:

I have only had a chance to fiddle with it once so far, the sound it puts out is amazing! The sound is very pure and true. I ran it through a 100w backline head and swr 4x12 cab. the only problem is that it doesnt allow the full volume like my peavey cirrus. maybe just due to the small battery. It still is loud enough for almost any gig that you could play, just doesnt have that edge over drums playing full volume. Well worth it especially for the price.

    This is my 3rd pick up system -- finally -- a system that does not feed back -- it's a keeper.

    Comments about Shadow SH 965 NFX-B Nanoflex Pickup with Preamp for Upright Bass:

    This is a great little pickup. The sound quality is good and I like where the actual pickup mounts to the bass. I was suspect of the preamp at first. It doesn't have very many settings. But, it turns out that two knobs is all that's needed on this system. The preamp looks cheaply made. It's all plastic. And the grey color scheme just screams of cheaply-made stuff. But it really really works well. The only reason why I returned this pickup is that the sound wasn't significantly better than the one I already have. But if I didn't have a pickup I would use the shadow all day everyday.
