"Nordisk Kontrabass has sounds I've found nowhere else - it is awesome. I've been using it on everything since I got it and I love it. It is expressive, emotive and honestly just really fun to play with."
. Film composer (Brahms: The Boy II, Devil Inside, Wer).

"Nordisk Kontrabass is one of those libraries that stands out as something new. Something exciting and fresh to integrate with your more standard orchestral libraries."
. Film & TV Composer (Ice Road Rescue, Haunted, Tainted, Thale).

NORDISK KONTRABASS is a unique upright bass instrument designed for film composers and music producers looking for fresh and original sounds.

Superbly performed by a top creative player, Nordisk Kontrabass is great both as a fat, real sounding upright bass and as a stand-alone compositional tool, capable of delivering beautiful and engaging string harmonies and textures, powerful rhythms and emotive melodies that will make your music stand out.
