Here's a Viper that really catches the eye! This 5-string Kosmic Kamen Viper has phantom frets, giving you a visual cue to help with intonation in high volume situations, or any time when less-than-ideal monitoring makes it hard for you to hear your own sound.
Its midnight blue and green Kosmic Kamen finish looks amazing in any light, and truly stunning in direct sunlight, or under bright stage lights. This finish is different from the Kamen Sparkle that we had before. The mica flakes that reflect back blue and green are layered onto the base color, using a method that causes only the blue flakes to sparkle from certain angles. The visual effect is almost hypnotic. Chrome hardware completes the look of this beautiful Viper.
Pickup upgrade option
This Kosmic Kamen Sparkle fretless Viper is equipped with the Wood Violins TruTone bridge, which gives it a strong, clear, and convincingly violin-like tone. However, for an upcharge you may choose to have us upgrade the pickup to a Barbera Twin Hybrid transducer bridge. The Barbera pickup sounds great "clean" through a good acoustic amplifier, but is perhaps the best pickup on the market for players who are using high-gain effects to achieve electric guitar-like sounds. Its strong output signal will help you to be heard, even when playing with the loudest ensembles.
To upgrade to the Barbera pickup, select the option in the dropdown above.
The Viper's patented chest support system is a stroke of genius -- you don't have to waste even the tiniest bit of effort or attention to holding up the instrument. This gives you the freedom to focus all of your energy on making music. The chest support system lets you easily move around on stage, step up to the mic, or whatever you need to do -- and the instrument sounds as good as it looks. Break free of your traditional thought patterns, and take your playing to the edge!
Comes with fitted, padded gig bag. For extra protection, we recommend a customer Viper hard case
