Please contact us for availability before placing your order.
NS Design WAV4 Radius Basshas the amazing playability, tone, and comfort that you've come to expect from a Steinberger bass but at an unbelievably affordable price, designed by legend Ned Steinberger himself. The WAV4 Radius delivers an intuitive, natural playing experience you'll be grateful for at the end of a four-set gig, from its headless neck to the concave body to the at-your-fingertips patented tuning system.
The WAV4 Radius produces a tone with an articulate bite and tremendous sustain, thanks to its maple body and flamed maple top. The instrument's shape is balanced to perfection with no downward dip of its neck. The resulting amount of free movement your fretting hand is permitted is exceptional. You'll find the WAV4 Radius remarkably stable and amazingly comfortable to play, due to its concave back radius and tightly radiused front.
Instead of using a traditional headstock with heavy conventional tuning machines, the WAV4 Radius uses a self-clamping, precision tuning system that is built into the instrument's body. This system, originally created for the NS violin, is quick, simple, and accepts any standard single-ball end, full-scale bass guitar strings. To string the WAV4 Radius, you simply cut the string to length, feed it through a slot, and tune it by winding a knob. Although the WAV4 Radius' ultra-light headstock may take some time to get used to, your hands will soon realize how much freedom they're enjoying when they no longer have to compensate for an unbalanced instrument.
