Dingwall Basses - The Adam 'Nolly' Getgood NG2 at Andertons!

Dingwall are renowned for crafting instruments of the utmost quality, and the NG2 is no exception. Taking conventional construction to the next level with a multi-scale design, this bass offers immense playability while projecting some of the most precise tones we've ever heard from a bass.

Construction

The NG2 boasts an elegant and sleek body design, especially with its carbon fibre print pickguard. But looks aside, it is the instrument's materials that are more key to its focused and detailed sound. With the body formed from Alder, this tonewood has a strong mid-range bark that pumps out balanced lows and crisp highs, allowing notes to sound broad yet lively.

Paired with a bolt-on Maple neck, this bright-sounding material further accentuates the instrument's top-end presence, with its 5-piece design offering incredible strength and stability. Letting notes cut through effortlessly in even the most frantic of mixes, the Maple neck's bolt-on joint also enhances their definition and attack.

Multi-Scale Design

The most noteworthy feature of the NG-2 is its multi-scale design. With a 37" scale on the low B string and a 34" scale on the G, the higher string tension on the lower strings gives the bass more punch and clarity where it matters most.

Utilising fanned frets, these allow for super-accurate intonation across the entire fingerboard, with their slanted placement suiting the natural resting position of your hand. It may look odd at first, but you'd be surprised at how easy it is to adapt to this type of neck!

Electronics & Hardware

The NG2 is installed with a pair of punchy Dingwall-designed FD-3N pickups. These deliver the thunderous and aggressive sounds most synonymous with Nolly, featuring Neodymium magnets for improved definition. The pickups are placed close to the bridge to further boost the instrument's upper mid-range response, for increased clarity when fighting against the sound of multiple guitars.

Featuring a master volume control, the NG2 also boasts a 4-way rotary pickup selector that lets you use each pickup alone, or in conjunction with one another in series or parallel modes. With an active/passive switch that can let you achieve vintage and modern voicings, it is the Darkglass 3-band preamp that really sets this bass apart. Giving you control over the three main areas of the NG2's EQ, you can tailor the sound of the bass to suit practically any style of music, not solely metal.

The NG2 is also kitted out with tour-grade hardware appointments, including lightweight open-gear tuners that offer a smooth feel for precise pitching. The NG2's highly-adjustable staggered bridge design also allows each string to vibrate more freely, for greater sustain and resonance.
