OVERVIEW

The essence of an acoustic instrument with more possibilities.

This electric upright bass is a great choice for the player looking for their first electric instrument. The WAV5c includes the best combination of design, performance and affordability. Easy to transport, this electric upright bass captures the essence of an acoustic instrument, but includes an exciting range of new possibilities.

Utilizing the NS patented Polar Pickup System, the WAV5c produces an amazingly natural bass tone without the problems of feedback and wolf tones. The pickup makes the use of electronic effect and looping easier and more effective than an amplified acoustic bass. The dual-mode pickup allows the player to switch from lateral arco (bow) to vertical (pizzicato) sensitivity, for a uniquely even and sustained plucked sound with more control over attack and decay, which results in additional expressive potential.

The asymmetrical fingerboard relief offers extraordinary playability in all positions. This fingerboard, featuring Coform technology, utilizes the engineered pairing of maple and high-tech acrylic to produce an ebony-like appearance with outstanding feel and performance, while helping to sustain traditionally used hardwoods.

FEATURES
  • Asymmetrical fingerboard relief for easy playability
  • Coform technology produced fingerboard
  • Polar Pickup System with dual-mode control from lateral to vertical sensitivity
