NS Design NXT 4-String Cello
Crafted in the Czech Republic, the NXTa Cello exemplifies flawless workmanship while providing the virtual absence of wolf tones, freedom from feedback, and a great sound thanks to the self-powered NS Polar„¢ Pickup System. The new dual mode signal output electronics of the NXTa take the convenience, versatility and performance capability of the NXT to another level. The instrument can be played in "Active Mode" by connecting the supplied charger into any AC outlet for 60 seconds, powering the capacitor-powered active circuit for up to 16 hours of performance time. The instrument can then be plugged straight into any low or high impedance device, no direct box necessary. Since there is no signal loss over the full frequency spectrum of the instrument, the fundamentals of every note remain clear and strong, even with extra-long cables. The instrument can be played in "Passive Mode" when using a direct box or an amplifier with high impedance input (this mode provides performance capabilities identical to the original NXT).
The solid maple body and neck along with the graduated fingerboard contribute to the delivery of a rich, full tone that rings true for every note. Asymmetrical fingerboard relief provides extraordinary ease of playability from the lowest to the highest positions. To suit individual player preferences, the fingerboard relief can be adjusted via the truss rod in the neck, and the string height is readily adjustable at the bridge.
