Warm, rich upright tone with modern electronics.
For the bassist entering the world of the pure electric upright, this instrument offers the combination of design, performance and affordability exceeding any other instrument in its class. True to the NS tradition, the WAV readily captures the essence of an acoustic, yet opens up a wide range of new possibilities.
The WAV Double Bass, whose electronics are fully based around the NS patented Polar Pickup System, is available in 4 or 5 string models with several color choices to please the eye as well. The WAV proudly shares the same elegant, modern body design, ergonomics and performance support options of its companions in the NS line.
The WAV’s Polar pickup system includes a convenient toggle switch between Arco and Pizzicato mode. Use the Arco mode for a traditional acoustic response for either bowing and a percussive plucked sound, or switch to the Pizzicato mode for uniquely even and sustained plucked sound, opening up new dimensions to the sound pallet. The piezo-powered passive electronics deliver an amazingly natural tone with unlimited overhead for extraordinary performance without the need or hassle of batteries.
The solid maple body and neck with a graduated rosewood fingerboard, delivers the rich, full tone you expect from every NS Instrument. The WAV Series brings the same clarity and fullness with every note. Asymmetrical fingerboard relief and an adjustable bridge and truss rod allow the player to tweak the neck relief and string heights to suit the music and personal playing style.
Compact and lightweight, the WAV Double Bass is an excellent instrument for musicians on the move. It comes equipped with a stand, and padded gig that carries the instrument with a handle and strap and includes separate pouch compartments for storing the stand, bow and accessories. The loaded gig bag will fit in the overhead compartment of most commercial aircraft. An optional hard-shell flight case is available for the WAV Double Bass.
NS Electric Strings and most traditional acoustic strings fit all NS Double Basses, allowing the player to select from a wide range, each with a unique sound and feel. In combination with the easy adjustment of basic set-up parameters, the WAV Series Bass is adaptable to virtually any style of music.
Several interchangeable performance support systems are available for the WAV: The standard tripod stand; the heavy-duty CR Tripod Stand (optional); the more conventional Bass End Pin Stand and optional Conversion Kit (used in conjunction with the CR Tripod Stand); or full mobility either the Boomerang Strap System or the Frame Strap System.
