Traditional NXTs IN STOCK
Get yours now!
This is an amazing value -- for our upright bass-playing friends who want an EUB that can "sub" for the big bass, we've done all the upgrades for you -- and even put a custom "traditional" finish on the bass.

You get all the modern ergonomics and portability of the NS Design Electric Uprights, but with the Traditional string set for a more authentic doublebass sound (and bowability). We've also had NS Design upgrade the tuners to the CR-spec Schallers. And the cool traditional brown finish, over the veneer, looks classy and traditional -- and we even include a set of f-hole decals you can optionally install on the bass.

Limited quantities available, and you can't get this anywhere else, folks.

A partially completed page entitled "The Bass Education Project" provided access to and hosted images of double bass fingerboard positions. It is no longer available on the web (though you might be able to use this archived copy at the Wayback Machine), and since this is a much-requested item, I will host them as a courtesy to my fellow players.

As you click on any of the listed positions, a separate window will open with the image inside, ready to print or review. You may also simply download the .gif images by right-clicking on each and choosing "save as" or whatever command your browser provides.



I hope that the author of that page will contact me if he reposts his project; I will be glad to link to the new net location. Meanwhile, I will host this resource.

Here is one of the charts for your reference:
