You've got to play the Ned Steinberger CR4M electric upright bass to believe how good it feels! Smooth playing, made in the Czech Republic, sounds and looks gorgeous! Loves to be bowed or plucked. Magnetic pickups add punch and presence to the Polar Bridge.

A wonderfully smooth playing and sounding EUB (electric upright bass). Ned Steinberger is the master of ergonomics, as well as tonal flexibility. This NS CR4M model adds EMG magnetic pickups, for even more flexibility of tone beyond the Polar bridge pickups. A 3 position switch lets you choose the output of the two types of pickups, and you can also adjust each string's coil of the neodymium magnets for as punch as you desire, and to balance the output for your best tone (Includes great heavy duty braced tripod stand and improved gig bag with pocket for the stand)

BRIDGE PICKUP: The Polar directional piezo pickup system responds selectively to either vertical vibration (for the sustained plucked sound, like an electric bass guitar), or lateral vibration (for dynamic bowing, and a percussive plucked sound).
