About NSDesign EUB:
At the heart of every NS bowed electric instrument is the multifaceted Polar pickup system. Developed for the original EU bass, the Polar pickup is really 2 pickups in one, allowing the player to select Arco and Pizzicato modes. The pickup's unique ability to determine the polarity of the string enhances the bowed response to facilitate fluid Arco technique.
The Ned Steinberger basses are equipped with unusually powerful piezo crystals that do not require on-board battery power, for maintenance-free performance without the hassle of batteries.
The ebony fingerboard is shaped for each string to optimize the tone and playability of every note. The characteristic growl of the double bass speaks out easily up and down the fingerboard, with powerful bass definition and a singing upper register. The cascading dot pattern makes it easier to stay in tune, even when it's hard to hear yourself in the mix.
The Solid Wood Body is made from a rock-hard maple and comes in a variety of finishes including Amber, Black, and Red. Other exotic woods are also available in the CR Series by Special Order.
The maple bridge is easily adjustable for the playing style and action height you prefer. High & powerful like a traditional acoustic upright, low & fast like an electric bass, or anywhere in between, the truss rod adjusts the neck to maintain the ideal fingerboard relief for all styles of play.
Light gauge, solid core strings are standard factory issue, delivering rich tone with relatively light action. The dual string anchor design allows the use of NS Double Bass Strings from DAddario or other traditional acoustic strings in the shorter scale lengths.
A fully adjustable (height and angle) tripod stand is included with every bass. Lightweight and strong, the stand folds neatly for transport. The nylon canvas gig bag is fully padded for protection during travel and is also included with each bass.
