The new 5 string instrument has a 34 inch scale set up especially for bowing. The instrument also performs particularly well as a pizzicato bass instrument and can be tuned in fourths like a standard bass, or in fifths like a cello.
The proprietary NS Polar piezo and EMG magnetic pickup systems along with the on board preamp allow the player to select attack and decay parameters to compliment both arco and pizzicato technique.
All NS instruments feature a full range of ergonomically designed stands, and the new NS Shoulder Strap System for cello and bass.
