Fantastic !
das kleine tier, 15.01.2012
After 30 years of experience in the E-Bass-Spiel (bundled and bundled) I wanted to expand my sonic - and I landed with the NS Design Omni Bass. The instrument is superbly processed and offers a wide range of sounds thanks to the very good active electronics. The Omni Bass is pitched between E-bass (especially when using the magnetic pickup) and the cello or double bass (when using the piezo pickup). The best way to do this is to use the piezo pickup.

As an E-Bassist with Fretless experience, the Omni-Bass can be found quite quickly, as there are a lot of small markings on the fretboard, and the length is the same as most Longscale basses.

Conclusion:
An excellent instrument for all of us who have a double bass because of the longer scale length, but which still look for a very similar sound. Processing and equipment of the NS design CR 5 M Omni Bass are worth the price, but you should consider the costs for a bow and possibly the unfortunately overpriced NS Design tripod stand, since the bow game when using the supplied boomerang (= A mobile holder with a carrying strap) is a bit difficult.

Very nice multi-purpose instrument.
05.02.2017
I have been playing with the NS Design CR5 Omni Bass for a year and I love it.

I am polyinstrumental, I take it wherever I can without my acoustic double bass. In the jams and concerts it finds its place and the sound is at the rendezvous.

Most :
- the adjustment of the sound between the piezo and magnetic mics.
- the 5th string for solos:)
- the mobility and the lightness with the boomerang strap system that is to say the passage from the position bass to electric bass very easy.
- the finish is very beautiful.

The lessers :
- for pure bass players, the passage of a tuning fork from 106 cm to 86 cm is a bit rough but you get used to it.
- I had to buy a cello bow to really sound the arco strings because I could not do it with my bass bow.
