EU Series NS Design 5 String Electric Upright Bass. Includes Gig bag, road case and Tripod Stand.
Always kept in pet and smoke free studio. NS's flagship double bass. The EU Series is made in the Czech Republic to the exact specifications of the original US Series instrument. The revolutionary design is molded with concentric laminations of graphite and rock maple that run the entire length of the instrument for maximum sonic integrity. The back of the neck is curved inward to follow the arch of the fingerboard, resulting in a slim, easy to play neck with full access to the upper register.
A fabulous bowed response and drum like pizzicato attack are characteristic of the lateral mode, while the sustained pizz. Response of the vertical mode creates a new dimension for the upright bass. Magnetic pickups by EMG add a smooth option to the sound pallet. Available in 5 and 6 stringed models, the EU Series Double Bass, designed by Ned Steinberger, is in a class of its own, offering the bassist unparalleled performance and tonal quality.MAPLE/GRAPHITE LAMINATE : The body and neck employ a unique laminating process combining 27 alternate thin layers of maple (for the feel and warmth of wood), and graphite fibers (for brilliance, consistent sustain, and stability) adhered in an epoxy matrix. The result: remarkable strength & tonal brilliance. CONCENTRIC NECK, BODY, AND PEGHEAD : The back of the neck is curved inward to follow the arch of the fingerboard, creating a broad recess for the thumb that gives the neck a slim, fast feel for its entire length and ensures structural integrity from neck to body.
In the vertical or pizzicato mode, plucked notes are remarkably even and sustained. The low-impedance EMG magnetic pickups incorporate individually adjustable coils and neodymium magnets, giving the player a more diverse sonic palette.

The loaded gig bag will fit in the overhead compartment of most commercial aircraft.
