The ergonomic shape naturally molds to your frame, letting you wield the 34" scale length without strain. The silky-smooth ebony fingerboard is a dream for rapid riffing or intricate fingerwork.

A Thunderous Voice That Cuts Through the Mix

Prepare to make a seismic impact with the NP-4's potent active electronics. The EMG 35DC bridge pickup and 35P4 neck humbucker were selected to deliver Nadja's signature massive, aggressive tone. These active pickups pump out thick, percussive lows that will rattle the stage, yet they retain remarkable clarity in the mids and highs for articulate note separation. The blend control allows you to mix the pickups freely, accessing everything from scooped metal crunch to a throaty vintage growl.

Sculpt Your Sound With Precision EQ

The NP-4's onboard 2-band EQ gives you exceptional tone-shaping capabilities right at your fingertips. Dial in a tight, snarling midrange for aggressive slap parts. Boost the treble for cutting leads that slice through the densest mix. Or, scoop the mids to achieve a thunderous, subterranean rumble for apocalyptic breakdowns. Combined with the pickup blend knob, this EQ unlocks an enormous tonal palette for any genre or playing style. Master volume completes the versatile control setup.

Built for Uncompromising Tuning Stability

Equally crucial for the NP-4's sonic potency is its rock-solid tuning stability and sustain. The Schecter High Mass bridge transfers string energy efficiently while anchoring your intonation. Premium Grover tuners maintain precise tuning even under the heaviest string bends and most aggressive techniques. The rigid bolt-on construction and carbon fiber neck reinforcement rods further enhance note clarity and resonance. This bass stays locked in and focused no matter how hard you push it.

Whether you're a seasoned metal veteran or an aspiring genre-defying bassist, the Schecter Nadja Peulen NP-4 has the power, nuance and playing comfort to inspire your wildest creative impulses. With its aggressive yet articulate voice and uncompromising build quality, this signature instrument was designed to leave a lasting impact.
