    The NXT Series Double Bass.

    Pizzicato and Arco techniques have almost unlimited expressive potential, thanks to the Polar™ 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. Passive electronics deliver unlimited overhead for the ultimate sound without cumbersome batteries.

    The solid maple body and neck, together with the graduated fingerboard, deliver 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.

    Currently strung with NS Electric Strings. Will Aslo include an un-used box of strings (pictured).

    Includes a self-supporting tripod stand with full adjustments for height and angle. The Tripod Stand is Black painted steel, fully adjustable, self-standing tripod design. Folds for easy storage and fits into gig bag.

A switch allows the player to choose the desired response.
