The CRM Series electric upright bass, with its exceptional versatility and tone quality, is an indispensable tool for a wide range of bassists. The lean, solid-body CRM Series bass takes its place in a long history of fine instruments crafted in the Czech Republic.

  • EMG™ magnetic pickups expand the range to include classic electric bass sounds. These low-impedance EMG pickups incorporate individually adjustable coils and neodymium magnets. Each coil is buffered separately for a full sound quality with very low noise.
  • The CRM Series neck and body are made from select maple.
  • The full scale fingerboard is graduated for consistent response from note to note, with adjustable relief and bridge height to suit all playing styles.
  • Our Polar™ Bridge Pickup System combines great sound with directional sensitivity, for a rich and expressive response to arco and pizzicato technique.
  • Controls include volume, a blend control for magnetic and piezo pickups, the mode of the Polar pickup direction, and individual treble EQ & bass EQ controls. The 18-volt power supply insures plenty of reserve overhead for full dynamics.
