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 string models, the solid-body CR Series is made from select maple and ebony, for sustain , brilliance of tone, and stability. Standard 106 cm acoustic scale length is employed to ensure that fingering will be be like a conventional upright. The neck shape is traditional, except that the smaller body allows unrestricted access to the upper register. The fingerboard is graduated for consistent response from note to note, with cascading dot makers for reference. A truss rod to control neck relief and adjustable bridge height make it easy to maintain a perfect setup. The exclusive Polar pickup has 2 modes of operation, "arco" and "pizzicato" that may be blended together. The arco mode enhances sensitivity to the bow, and the plucked response is extraordinarily percussive. In the pizz. modes the percussive attack is reduced for smooth sustained response. When blended together the response is similar to an acoustic upright. Optional EMG magnetic pickups expand the angle for a smooth, electric sound. Three interchangeable support systems are available for the bas: the self-supporting Tripod Stand, End Pin Stand, and Shoulder Strap System for full mobility. According to Bass Player Magazine, the CR Series "boasts impeccable craftsmanship from a country with a reputation for quality upright bass building, its clean aesthetics, excellent playability, and great sound put it ahead of the pack."
