The Noyce & Howell Semi-Acoustic Double Bass is collapsible
There is no need to remove the strings when dismantling
bass, as it is the tailpiece that is removed with the strings attached (see Latch Assembly, pictured left). The neck is screw/bolted on and fits snugly into its own socket.
A remarkable feature of the Noyce & Howell Semi-Acoustic Double
Bass is that it can be played as an acoustic double bass by a simple
blend of the natural acoustic sound with the low frequencies from
a bass amplifier. Ideal for the touring bassplayer who has a gig
or a session where an acoustic double bass is called for.
