NS DESIGN NXTa 5 Upright Bass Satin Sunburst

Electric 5-string upright bass with Polar pickup system, including gig bag and stand

The  NS Design NXTa 5 Upright Bass Satin Sunburst  is an electric double bass with excellent playing and sound characteristics that are hardly distinguishable from a full-sized double bass. NS Design uses a  neck-thru construction  with  neck and body made of maple , complemented by a chic  flamed maple veneer  for a dignified look and a  hand-polished Richlite fretboard . The innovative  Polar pickup system  of the NXTa 5 not only offers separate  arco  and  pizzicato   modes  with optimal string sensing for bow and finger play, but also an  active preamp  with  optional passive mode . High-quality  die-cast tuners   with closed gears  guarantee an exact and stable tuning of the NS Design NXTa 5 Upright Bass Satin Sunburst.


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.
