For a few centuries bass makers world wide selected the best woods to make, create and build the upright bass as it sounds today. Many hours of trimming the top and the bridge are invested to create the ultimate bass sound. The Shadow SH 965 NFX-B is a professional bass pickup which provides absolute natural sound with no noise or hum. The pickup is based on the revolutionary Nanoflex technology.
Shadow's Nanoflex technology makes no compromise in preserving these features. It is built to reproduce the instrument vibrations authentically regardless of playing style. No need for instrument modification was a must in developing this absolutely noise and hum free upright bass pickup system.
Nanoflex pickups do not just reproduce the vibrations of the strings like common bridge pickups. Nanoflex senses the vibrations of the strings AND the body of the instrument simultaneously. No other pickup technology gives you this high level of sound reproduction. This is why the best upright bass players in the world are using the Shadow SH 965 NFX Nanoflex pickup system.
Due to active amplification directly at the pickup and 100% shielding of the entire system, no sound will be lost and no hum created. The preamp runs on a standard 3V coin battery which last for about 100 hours. A standard 1/4" output socket is provided.
