Ned Steinberger - NS Design NXT Electric Violin

NSV5X (5-string)

The NXT violin opens up a new horizon for the serious musician seeking to play a world-class electric violin on a limited budget. These new instruments, crafted in the Czech Republic by the makers of NS Design's renowned CR series, exemplify flawless workmanship at an incredible value.

Light weight and balance are critical factors for any electric violin, and the NXT is one of the lightest and best-balanced performance electrics available. Weighing less than 1.5 pounds, the NXT uses special carving techniques to reduce the weight of the maple body, while preserving extraordinary rigidity and striking good looks. Ultralight tail-mounted tuners allow precise adjustment, easy string changes, and keep the balance point of the instrument close to the shoulder for maximum comfort.

The advanced piezo technology eliminates the need for heavy on-board batteries and circuitry. The self-powered Polar electromechanical transducer has higher output than most active systems. The result is unsurpassed dynamic range, clarity, and sheer power. The dual mode Polar pickup responds to both lateral string vibration for bowing and vertical vibration for pizzicato playing. The resulting sound retains the essential timbre of a fine acoustic violin, but is easily modified - via on-board controls or post-processing - to suit almost any sonic palette.

The NXT is also the first NS violin to incorporate NS Design's innovative JackPot potentiometer in its volume and tone controls. Conventional passive volume and tone controls work by siphoning a portion of the output signal to ground, and continue to hold back a portion of the pickup's signal even when turned up all the way. The JackPot incorporates a rotary switch that can disengage the ground and send 100% of the instrument's signal to the amplifier. The result is a fuller, richer tone, with more power, detail, and overall intensity.

As adaptable as it is powerful, the NXT adjusts easily to any violinist's style. It comes equipped with the NS Custom Shoulder Rest, which can be formed by the player to fit the body perfectly.

Plug 'n Play™ 4-string Electric Violin Studio Outfit with Amp

Strong and Mellow Acoustic Sound, Professional Grade

The Plug 'n Play electric violin just keeps getting better and better! We worked with a professional multi-genre violinist on what pros want: New geared pegs work much more reliably and smoothly than friction pegs under hot stage lights, eliminating the need for fine adjusters and making tuning a breeze. We also lowered the string action to allow for fast and soft fingering. We did this by improving the quality of the ebony fingerboard, bridge, and strings, performing the entire setup and tonal output adjustment at SHAR. Finally, we upgraded the electronics, for far more output. The new Plug 'n Play Concert violin sounds clean, mellow and complex, like an acoustic violin, but now that drummer has met his match on stage! Of course, you can also tone it down... way down, by plugging the included earbuds directly into your Plug 'n Play violin, so as not to bother your neighbors when practicing. In fact, transitioning from your acoustic to your Plug 'n Play couldn't be easier – because of its clever design, you can even use your favorite shoulder rest. 

Outfit includes Plug 'n Play Amplifier (SVA1), Toshira case (TC100), Brazilwood bow (KVB), mini rosin, cable with 1/4" jack, earbudss and 9-volt battery. Choose from Ebony Black, Sangria Red, True Blue, or Titanium White. 4/4 size. Instrument Weight 1.7 lbs.

Plug 'n Play™ Cello Outfit

Item# PPC24T

$999.00

In Stock

We've just added more reasons to love Plug 'n Play™ cellos! Working with a performing electric cellist, we focused on the needs of ensemble performers. Because tuning in the middle of a performance can be frightful, we added geared pegs, which hold their tuning and make adjustments almost imperceptible. We also added much more power, so you can soar above the horns when the music calls for it! And for practice at home, you can forgo the amp, plug in the included earphones, and practice without disturbing others. 

If you play a traditional acoustic cello, switching over to the Plug ' Play™ couldn't be easier – just plug into an amp, adjust the carbon fiber endpin, have a seat, and start playing. If you perform in a band and need to stand up, remove the endpin, insert the special extra long endpin provided, attach chest support piece, and you're ready to rock. Each Plug 'n Play™ is set up by SHAR, including critical finishing of the ebony fingerboard. 

Outfit includes pro gig bag, Brazilwood bow (KCB), cable with 1/4" jack, chest piece, earbuds and 9-volt battery. In ebony black.

Start Playing Electric Violin Where Every Violin Student Starts: SHAR

Have you thought about going electric, but just didn't know how to get started? Do you need an instrument that is affordable yet will perform without problems? With so many confusing websites, have you been afraid of getting burned by those bargain basement electrics that may look inexpensive, but you know that they just won't perform as you need them to? You know that you can trust SHAR for quality affordable acoustic instruments, now SHAR offers you the perfect way to start with Electrics!

We designed and built the SHAR Electric Violin around four core principles that hundreds of violinists told us any good electric violin must meet: It must sound like an acoustic violin, only loud. It has to have professional features, such as a 1/4" output jack. It has to have a silent practice feature. And it has to feel like playing an acoustic violin. Built especially for SHAR, professionally setup in SHAR's own shop, and individually inspected, adjusted and test-played, the SHAR Electric may be just what you have been looking for. Ebony pegs and fingerboard, carbon fiber tailpiece with four fine tuners, proper and professional setup, and fitted with Overture Premium strings, the SHAR Electric Violin will feel familiar right out of the box. Now's your chance to easily stand up next to that trumpet player in church!

The outfit includes a Toshira case, Schmidt bow, rosin, cable, battery, earphones and amplifier... plug in, and you are all set! Available in four vivid colors: Jet Black, Titanium White, Electric Blue, and Fire Red.

Cricket Violin - Geared Pegs - Chestnut - Electric

Item# CR2 D

$527.00

The Cricket: The Most Exciting Development Since...the Violin!

The Cricket is the perfect travel violin for two reasons: It is small and easy to tote, especially into airliner overhead compartments. And, it is durable and reliable under less than ideal conditions, such as high heat and humidity. Perfect for the professional who needs to keep up with practice, but does not want to worry about their main violin. And it's great for beginners who need a reliable, good sounding full sized violin.

Carefully designed and crafted by Dale Webb and his crew in his Massachusetts workshop, the Cricket is actually based on the 17th century Dance Master's violin, the Pochette. The body is short because of the cleverly designed and adjustable chinrest and shoulder rest, which bolt on with ease, effectively lengthening the Cricket to the proper playing position - and after playing, simply remove them for storage. Aged spruce tonewood top provides fine tone, while a headstock, making changing strings a breeze. Although the Cricket is small, it is built to classic violin dimensions; that means that it feels right, and that standard violin strings play perfectly.

The Cricket has smoothly functioning Grover friction pegs, ready to enjoy as soon as you open the case, If you play in a band or in church, go with the electrified Cricket, which adds an internal B-Band U1.0 lithium powered preamp and AST pickup, AND premium Peghead geared pegs. And you can add a Cricket soft case, made in the USA by TKL, especially for Cricket violins. Weight 1.05 lbs.
