The CR Series electric
upright bass, with its exceptional versatility and tone quality, is fast
becoming an indispensable tool for the serious bassist. The lean, solid-body CR
Series bass takes its place in a long history of fine instruments crafted in
the Czech Republic.
Available in 4 and 5
stringed models, the CR Series is made from select maple and ebony. 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
pizzicato and arco technique. Optional EMG magnetic pickups expand the range to
include classic electric bass sounds.
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."
support systems are available for the bass: the self supporting tripod stand,
more conventional end pin stand, and shoulder strap assembly for full mobility.
