Brubaker Guitars NBS-4
Low manufactures Kevin brubaker the USA in the state of Maryland.
c is a double-cut model nbs c words of classical form. the single cut model KBX is one that you do corp that touches the handle and most rpandu. (including YouTube)
the bridge and the keys are the Hipshot brand, so very effective, it ever desacorde and gives incredible flexibility to the ropes.
the handle is a revolution because it is a handle taversant screwed instead of a revolution al (bolt true). it is really very end. 24 frets and scale of 34.3 / 4
the pickups are dual coil bartolini (2x2) and slecteur used to pass several configurations depending on its search quickly (flat normal position, jazz bass style exterior, rear mic ...)
the very big surprise for me it is the preamp Glockenklang, what fishing wow. c is srieux (German) and very aggressive with a single battery. rglages are the volume / pull liabilities, acute mdium and low and blend (mix between the two microphones) and the slecteur for microphones.
here is the dtails options

nbs 4 Strings $ 3,010
stainless steel freight $ 500, stainless frets and gives this sound so special brubaker.
high gloss polyurethane finish natural, dcuple echo of corp and the table (top) in spalted mapple $ 500
table (top) in spalted mapple $ 500. this wood dresses xtrem low brand so the most expensive.
fretboard in bird's eye mapple $ 200
preamp Glockenklang $ 200
black fittings $ 100
Nut copper $ 100
(Al exeption of the fretboard c is the extreme model)

my model does not contain the revolutionel interchangeable preamp
(Option with a $ 1000 preamp)
other options are available to increase the sound too, if you have any questions please send them messages since I dcris just my bass.


the handle is very close, really close, of that I have tested have ador j had the impression of playing faster. as the sound is fantastic. normal c is the one I prefer. the access to the treble is very easy.
all the notes are cohrente between her and I change not shock rope.
no its rglage of problem, you branch ringing slaps you and you enjoy.
it is very balanced and a little heavy compares a elkirk or roscoe. but not GNE me.


in sonority I play funk, hip hop and reggae slap only and it satisfies me.
I love slap and brubs are taills for ca. What rgal.
and that it boosts mdiums, cut a little sharp, pete in a finger funk style
I have finally found a bass with a mid shattering, and above all the soil just be very acute or very serious. it was hard, but in vain.
for reggae, you boost the bass and you sound rasta.

any sound can al exemption Mtal because I not therefore plays no comment. but must Ringer too.
infrabasses the sound of the lens marcus passing through bewitching mdium. I redcouvre the preamp use.
in a little quibble I can say that the sweater button mdiums my roscoe I miss. but the bass has so much mdiums that has not GNE me.
just one last Dtail to cut short what brubaker say that are just made for the slap, that they are wrong and that there will be a trying really surprised.


I used the last 3 months and I'm in seventh heaven. c is what I wanted.
seen that the choice is restricted low France.
I fell in love with the bass.
I have been quite low forward as musicman bongo and stingray and roscoe, HH, fender, cort ... and I have tried a lot of bass Bass Manchester day or during my travels as fbass, Ken Smith, Ibanez , fodera ... but this is the brubaker which are best.
I prefer that c is the sound and what I dteste c is 6 to 8 months of waiting and shortage of instrument (new and secondhand)
must be patient to a dnicher. but that is as ...
I have to buy mine directly to Kevin because I was going to the Caribbean so I made a "hook".
I had to buy one of my friend Malcolm Hall 5 string
I have had the chance to buy one of his 4-string bass unusual because it have a lot of 5 and 6 strings and a string 7,11,12. plus it is very cool and very open (not like Ken Smith or Fodera) it responds to him even to the mall and quickly (as Keith roscoe).
if I had to make the same choice, yes (knowing that I really like roscoe too, even though it is not known in France) but with diffrent wood, c is why I sell it because I will order another one (if I keep and I'll be very happy)
here is my humble opinion
