NXTa Omni Bass


The instrument purchase includes a Boomerang™ Strap System, gig bag, owner’s manual and tool kit.

The NS Omni Bass combines the feel and tonal character of an electric upright bass with the ease and familiarity of the 34″ scale, bridging the divide between an EUB and a bass guitar. The TransRadius™ fingerboard provides a familiar large radius feel for the left hand but which is arched for the option to bow at the bridge. Check out the remarkable freedom of movement and instrument positioning which the Boomerang™ Strap System provides.
