Product Description

NS Design NXT 4 Black

Available in 4 and 5 string configurations, these instruments are produced in the Czech Republic by the same craftsmen who build NS Design’s renowned EU and CR Series instruments and exemplify world-class design and flawless craftsmanship at a more affordable price point. With a visual appearance as striking as its sound, the roadworthy NXT design is an exciting and reliable partner for the most demanding performance career.

Sporting a full double bass scale length, the NXT Double Bass features a solid maple body and neck with a graduated ebony fingerboard for 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.
