Bruce’s current primary instruments come from the NS Designs family of orchestral electric stringed instruments.

The CR Series electric upright bass is a lean, solid-body upright bass that takes its place in a long history of fine instruments crafted in the Czech Republic. The CR Series electric cello is an instrument able to produce the delicate and precise tones of its acoustic parent as well as to create exciting new sounds. Bruce employs a unique stage setup for these two remarkable instruments that allows him to quickly switch from one to the other.
