Fantastisch !
das kleine tier, 15.01.2012
Nach 30 Jahren Erfahrung im E-Bass-Spiel (bundiert und bundlos) wollte ich mich klanglich erweitern – und bin beim NS Design Omni Bass gelandet. Das Instrument ist hervorragend verarbeitet und bietet dank der sehr guten aktiven Elektronik eine große Bandbreite an Sounds. Gezupft liegt der Omni Bass klanglich zwischen E-Bass (vor allem bei Verwendung des magnetischen Tonabnehmers) und Cello bzw. Kontrabass (bei Benutzung des Piezo-Tonabnehmers). Gestrichen klingt's am besten über den Piezo-Pickup.

Als E-Bassist mit Fretless-Erfahrung findet man sich auf dem Omni-Bass recht schnell zurecht, da sehr viele kleine Markierungspunkte auf dem Griffbrett vorhanden sind und die Mensur den meisten Longscale-E-Bässen entspricht.

Fazit:
Ein hervorragendes Instrument für alle, denen wir mir ein Kontrabass wegen der längeren Mensur zu groß ist, die aber dennoch einen sehr ähnlichen Klang suchen. Verarbeitung und Ausstattung des NS Design CR 5 M Omni Bass sind den Preis wert, man sollte aber noch die Kosten für einen Bogen und evtl. den leider überteuerten NS Design Tripod-Stand mit einkalkulieren, da das Bogen-Spiel bei der Verwendung des mitgelieferten Boomerang-Straps (= eine bewegliche Halterung mit Tragegurt) sich doch etwas schwierig gestaltet.

Très bel instrument polyvalent.
05.02.2017
Voilà un an que je joue avec la NS Design CR5 Omni Bass et j'adore.

Je suis polyinstrumentiste, je l'emporte partout où je peux me passer de ma contrebasse acoustique. Dans les jams et concerts il trouve toute sa place et le son est au rendez-vous.

Les plus :
- le réglage du son entre les micros piezo et magnétiques.
- la 5ème corde de do pour les solos : )
- la mobilité et la légerté avec le système boomerang strap c'est à dire le passage de la position contrebasse à basse électrique très facile.
- la finition est très belle.

Les moins :
- pour les contrebassistes purs, le passage d'un diapason de 106 cm à 86 cm est un peu rude mais on s'habitue.
- j'ai dû acheter un archet de violoncelle pour vraiment faire sonner les cordes en arco car je n'y arrivais pas avec mon archet de contrebasse.
