The pickup's unique abilityto determine the polarity of the string enhances the bowed response tofacilitate bow technique. The WAV 4 Bass is equipped with unusuallypowerful piezo crystals that do not require on-board battery power, formaintenance-free performance without the hassle of batteries. The black rosewood fingerboard is graduated foreach string to optimize the tone and playability of every note.
