Ned Steinberger is the master of ergonomic design - it not only looks great, it feels great, and it inspires you to new levels of creativity! He established a workshop in Europe to bring the price of quality electric upright basses within the reach of more players. He trained craftsmen in the Czech Republic so well that he discontinued his US made basses!
According to Bass Player magazine, the Czech made CR Series "boasts impeccable craftsmanship from a country with a reputation for quality upright bass building. It's clean aesthetics, excellent playability, and great sound put it ahead of the pack."
The NS Design CR Series 5 String Electric Double Bass was made in the Czech Republic, where there is a long-held reputation for producing the highest-quality upright basses. In its June 2000 issue, Bass Player magazine, citing its impeccable craftsmanship, stated, "This bass plays so well, in fact, that upright players may find it plays too easily."
