NS Design Double Bass

NXT Series Bass

The NXT Series Double Bass, available with 4 or 5 strings, opens up a new horizon for the serious bassist looking to play a great instrument on a limited budget. These new instruments are crafted in the Czech.

Pizzicato and arco techniques have almost unlimited expressive potential, thanks to the PolarTM
Pickup System. A convenient switch allows selection of the 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 deliver unlimited overhead for the ultimate
sound without cumbersome batteries.

Polar Pickup: The Polar™ directional piezo pickup system responds selectively to lateral string
vibration, for bowing and for the percussive plucked response of a traditional acoustic instrument,
or to vertical string vibration, for remarkable even and sustained plucked sound more like a guitar. A
switch allows the player to choose the desired response.

control and Tone control (treble roll off).
