The Steinberger upright bass has a minimal body allowing complete access to the high register. When we asked Ned to talk about his favorite feature of the instrument, he focused on the pickup system. The BiPolar piezo bridge transducer system delivers the percussive attack and natural bowed sound of an acoustic bass with one control setting, and the smooth, long sustaining sound of a fretless bass guitar with another setting. Rather than compromise with one combined sound, the BiPolar system allows the artist to select and combine sounds that fit the application.
This 5-String EUB has the piezo pickup and the magnetic pickup. It comes with a case and stand.
Length: 132 cm (52")";
Weight:4.8 kg (10.5 lbs.)";
Scale Length:106 cm (41.73")";
Strings: 4 or 5 (Low B or high C)";
Highly flamed European maple, ebony, and the latest high performance composite materials are combined in a painstaking process of traditional handcrafting and precision machining. The result is a beautiful instrument with flawless performance. The instrument attaches to an adjustable floor stand, freeing the musician's arms and shoulders to finger, pluck, or bow without having to support the weight of the bass.
