NS DESIGN Omni NXT 4 Double Sunburst

The NS Design NXT4 4-String Electric Double Bass Sunburst is designed for the bass guitarist interested in adding the character and expressiveness of an acoustic upright bass to their performance palette at an affordable price. 

Premium features include a self-powered 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. Passive electronics deliver unlimited overhead for the ultimate sound without cumbersome batteries.

The NXT bass now incorporates NS Design's innovative JackPot potentiometer in its volume and tone controls. Conventional passive volume and tone controls work by siphoning a portion of the output signal to ground, and continue to hold back a portion of the pickup's signal even when turned up all the way. The JackPot incorporates a rotary switch that disengages the ground when turned fully clockwise, sending 100% of the instrument's signal to the amplifier. The result is a fuller, richer tone, with more power, detail, and overall intensity.

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.

A wide array of interchangeable support systems make the NXT Double Bass adaptable to virtually any situation. Standard equipment includes a self-supporting tripod stand with full adjustments for height and angle.  A more traditional end pin stand is available, as well as shoulder strap options that allow for full mobility. The End Pin Stand conversion kit attaches to the tripod stand to hold the instrument upright for on-stand performance or when not in use.

The main features of the NS Design NXT4 4-String Electric Double Bass Sunburst include;

  • Body/neck: Solid, straight grain Maple, with flame Maple face on body.
  • Fingerboard: Hand-graduated. Intonation referenced with cascading dot markers and side dots.
  • Truss rod: Single Action, accessible at nut.
  • Tuning hardware: 12:1 ratio, fully encased worm gear tuners, black finish.
  • Polar pickup: The Polar directional piezo pickup system responds selectively to lateral string vibration, for bowing and for the percussive plucked response of a traditional acoustic instrument, or to vertical string vibration, for remarkable even and sustained plucked sound more like a guitar. A switch allows the player to choose the desired response.
  • Electronics and controls:  Passive circuit with high impedance output, no batteries required. Volume control and Tone control (treble roll off).
