NS Design WAV5 5-string upright bass, Transparent Red

Out of stock

Get down—way down—with the extended lower range of the WAV5 bass, strung B–E–A–D–G. The NS Design WAV upright bass offers good tone and visual appeal at an incredibly affordable price. Lightweight and compact, it’s a great entry-level road instrument for the gigging bassist.

Subtle and classy, the Transparent Red WAV color option is a gloss finish that reveals the flamed maple underneath. Leave the station wagon at home for your next gig; not only does the sleek and fast WAV electric upright bass handle like a sports coupe—it fits in one! The WAV’s compact design is modern and attractive, lightweight and compact. As an added bonus, the combination of the no-bout design with position indicator dots opens up access to the upper register of the instrument without requiring physical contortion or guesswork to get there. The WAV bass employs NS Design’s patented Polar™ pickup technology and includes a polarity switch that allows you to quickly optimize your pickup for either plucked or bowed playing. Highly adjustable, from truss rod to bridge height to a support stand that tilts, raises and lowers, you’ll play in comfort while you travel in style.
