NXTa 4 Upright Bass SB Satin Sunburst

Electric 4-string upright bass with piezo pickup system, including gigbag and shoulder strap

The NXTa 4 Upright Bass SB, whose electronics are based entirely on the Polar™ pickup system, combines the classic cabinet design, ergonomics and performance support of the CR and EU series. This 4-string instrument is made in the Czech Republic by the same craftsmen who also produce the most modern NS Design instruments.

Arco and pizzicato techniques have almost unlimited expression possibilities thanks to the Polar Pickup System. A convenient switch allows you to select the traditional Arco mode for percussive strokes and dynamic bow response or the Pizzicato mode for a soft, sustained sound.


Dual Mode Output - The new dual mode signal output electronics of the NXTa take the convenience, versatility and performance capability of the NXT to another level.

Active Mode - Using the supplied charger, the NXTa connects into any AC outlet for 60 seconds, powering the capacitor-powered active circuit for up to 16 hours of performance time. The instrument can then be plugged straight into any low or high impedance device, no direct box necessary. Since there is no signal loss over the full frequency spectrum of the instrument, the fundamentals of every note remain clear and strong, even with extra-long cables.

Passive Mode - The NXTa can be played in this mode when using a direct box or an amplifier with high impedance input. (This mode provides performance capabilities identical to the original NXT.)

Eco-Friendly Operation - NXTa instruments are battery-free, eliminating the hassle and cost of batteries while helping protect our environment.

Body: 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.

Strings: NS Electric Strings and most traditional acoustic strings fit all NS Double Basses, allowing the player to select from a wide range, each with a unique sound and feel. In combination with the easy adjustment of basic set-up parameters, the NXTa Series Bass is adaptable to many different styles of music.

GIG BAG: The NXTa double bass includes a padded gig bag that has a pouch for tripod stand, a bow compartment and room for the charger and accessories. The loaded gig bag will fit in the overhead compartment of most commercial aircraft.
