The Kramer D-1 Bass is a scorching full-scale four-string with deadly looks, smooth playability and more than enough solid tone to rumble the foundations of any venue. Crafted from premium tonewoods, with uncompromising Kramer styling, and loaded with an earth-shattering EMG active humbucker pickup, the D-1 Bass is more than enough to achieve maximum low-end assault for any stage or studio gig.
Probe beneath the extreme lines of the sleek Kramer D-1 Bass design and youÕll find top tonewoods to back it all up. The body is crafted from solid Mahogany, a timber with a long history in instrument making, known for its solid low and lower mid-frequency response and superior resonance. The 3-piece, five-bolt neck is carved from hard maple, and topped with a smooth black ebony fingerboard with 24 frets, a 12Ó radius, and a width of 1.68Ó at the nut. The full-length 34Ó bass scale yields optimum firepower from the low-E, but is achieved in a design that is compact, lightweight and well balanced.
A back-angled headstock achieves optimum string tension in the nut slots for maximum sustain, which is further enhanced at the body end by a solid and highly adjustable flush-mount bridge, which is plated in black just like the premium die-cast tuners. To ram all of this tonal goodness through your amp of choice, Kramer loads the D-1 with an EMG MMCS humbucking pickup with active BTS preamp system, powered by an internal 9-volt battery. EMGÕs MMCS uses ceramic magnets for a transparent high-end response, with steel added to increase inductance for a warm, powerful low end. The D-1Õs volume control is partnered by active treble and bass controls, and the BTS preamp includes three internal dipswitch settings that let you fine-tune the bassÕs high-end response. Put it all together, and itÕs one of the most powerful four-strings available today. Case not included.Features:
