Active bass, no DI needed.

The NXTa (active) 4 string double bass is crafted to exacting standards in the Czech Republic, and shares the classic body design, ergonomics and performance support options of the CR and EU Series.

About the new NXTa active circuitry: Using the supplied charger, plug the NXT into any AC outlet for 60 seconds to power the capacitor-powered active circuit for up to 16 hours of performance time. The instrument can then be plugged straight into any low or high impedance device, no direct box necessary. Since there is no signal loss over the full frequency spectrum of the instrument, the fundamentals of every note remain clear and strong, even with extra-long cables.

The NXTa can also be played in its passive mode when using a direct box or an amplifier with high impedance input. (This mode provides performance capabilities identical to the original NXT.)


  • Four string upright configuration
  • 16 hours play time on a single 60-second charge
  • No DI necessary for recording or live
  • No signal loss across the entire tonal spectrum
