Ned Steinberger - NS Design NXT Electric Violin

NSV4X (4-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.

Item# PPV24T

Shar: $429.00Sale: $389.00

In Stock

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 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.

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, and earphones... add an amp, 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

In Stock

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.

NS Design WAV4 Electric Violin - 4 String - 4/4 size

Item# NSV4W

$649.00

In Stock

Designed and built to deliver great sound, excellent playability, and long, dependable service, the NS WAV series electric violin provides an affordable option for the serious professional and student player.

At the heart of every NS electric violin is the Polar™ pickup system. Sensor and bridge geometry are integrated to translate every nuance to the amplifier and speaker system. The big, bold, and brilliant tone looks to the future, yet the sonic ingredients of the acoustic violin are present and can be tamed to become traditional in character. The Polar pickup has the unique ability to analyze the direction of string vibration to enhance the bowed response and to facilitate bow technique. The unusually powerful piezo crystals do not require on-board power, for maintenance-free performance without the hassle of batteries.

The reserve power of a well set up electric violin makes the instrument easier to play than a conventional acoustic. The NS WAV Violin's rock maple bridge is easily adjustable for the playing style and action height you prefer; high and powerful like a traditional violin, low and fast like an electric guitar, or anywhere in between. The ebony fingerboard is graduated for each string to optimize the tone and playability of every note. The neck is smooth and fast, with traditional thumb reference points for the scroll and heel. The removable bout provides accurate position reference for players accustomed to using the traditional body shape for reference.

Accurate, stable tuners are the key to in-tune performance. The patented self-clamping tuning mechanism automatically grips the string ever more tightly as tension is applied, and the micrometer tuning is smooth and precise. This set-it and forget-it tuning is light-years ahead of the friction tuners found on traditional instruments.

Comfort and balance are essential for any violin. The body mounted tuners on the NS WAV bring the center of gravity back over the shoulder where it belongs. The shoulder rest is contoured and padded to provide stable support, and is fully adjustable accommodate differences in playing styles and body types.

The NS WAV violin comes complete with fabric covered hard foam case, padded on the inside, with room for 2 bows, shoulder rest, output cable, and extra gear.

• Polar" Pickup System
Great natural sound, with volume and tone controls.

Shaped for effortless play.

Designed and built to deliver great sound, excellent playability, and long, dependable service, the NS WAV series electric violin provides an affordable option for the serious professional and student player.

At the heart of every NS electric violin is the Polar™ pickup system. Sensor and bridge geometry are integrated to translate every nuance to the amplifier and speaker system. The big, bold, and brilliant tone looks to the future, yet the sonic ingredients of the acoustic violin are present and can be tamed to become traditional in character. The Polar pickup has the unique ability to analyze the direction of string vibration to enhance the bowed response and to facilitate bow technique. The unusually powerful piezo crystals do not require on-board power, for maintenance-free performance without the hassle of batteries.

The reserve power of a well set up electric violin makes the instrument easier to play than a conventional acoustic. The NS WAV Violin's rock maple bridge is easily adjustable for the playing style and action height you prefer; high and powerful like a traditional violin, low and fast like an electric guitar, or anywhere in between. The ebony fingerboard is graduated for each string to optimize the tone and playability of every note. The neck is smooth and fast, with traditional thumb reference points for the scroll and heel. The removable bout provides accurate position reference for players accustomed to using the traditional body shape for reference.

Accurate, stable tuners are the key to in-tune performance. The patented self-clamping tuning mechanism automatically grips the string ever more tightly as tension is applied, and the micrometer tuning is smooth and precise. This set-it and forget-it tuning is light-years ahead of the friction tuners found on traditional instruments.

Comfort and balance are essential for any violin. The body mounted tuners on the NS WAV bring the center of gravity back over the shoulder where it belongs. The shoulder rest is contoured and padded to provide stable support, and is fully adjustable accommodate differences in playing styles and body types.

The NS WAV violin comes complete with fabric covered hard foam case, padded on the inside, with room for 2 bows, shoulder rest, output cable, and extra gear.
