The NS Design CR4 Radius Fretless Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Fusion neck provides stability, definition, and sustain
  • NS Diradial body delivers tone, balance, and playability
  • NS tuning system allows for quick string changing and balanced playability
  • NS/EMG pickup system delivers an extensive, rich spectrum of tones
Fusion neck provides stability, definition, and sustain

The CR4 Radius employs a one-piece bolt-on maple neck, however, its embedded continuous carbon fiber core creates an ultra-stable platform for your fingers to work their magic. The CR4 Radius' neck may feel like wood, however, its sustain and note definition are spellbinding. The neck's 34" scale length and ebony fingerboard further enhances this bass guitar's sustain and definition.

NS Diradial body delivers tone, balance, and playability

With its maple body and flamed maple top, the CR4 Radius produces a tone with an articulate bite and tremendous sustain. The instrument's shape is balanced to perfection with no downward dip of its neck. The resulting amount of free movement your left hand is permitted is exceptional. You'll find the CR4 Radius remarkably stable and amazingly comfortable to play, due to its concave back radius and tightly radiused front.

NS tuning system allows for quick string changing and balanced playability

Instead of utilizing a traditional headstock with heavy conventional tuning machines, the CR4 Radius utilizes 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 CR4 Radius, you simply cut the string to length, feed it through a slot, and tune it by winding a knob. Although the CR4 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.

NS/EMG pickup system delivers an extensive, rich spectrum of tones

In collaboration with EMG, NS Design developed the CR4's integrated piezo and magnetic pickup system. Featuring an 18V active preamp, the CR4 provides you with an astounding amount of dynamic headroom. Additionally, the combination of piezo and magnetic pickups produces a rich and versatile spectrum of tones. Master volume, active treble cut/boost, active bass cut/boost, and magnetic/piezo pickup blend knobs, in addition to a three-position magnetic pickup selector switch and three-position piezo EQ switch provide you with even more opportunities for tone tweaking.
