NS Design NXT5a 5-String Electric Upright Bass - Description

The NXTa Active Series Double Bass, whose electronics are fully based around the Polar™ Pickup System, share the classic body design, ergonomics and performance support options of the CR and EU Series. Available in 4 and 5 string configurations, these instruments are produced in the Czech Republic by the same craftsmen who build NS Design's most advanced instruments. Click here for the original NXT Series Double Bass.

Arco and Pizzicato 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.

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.)

Available in two Colour options: Sunburst, Back

Also Available in 5 string
