About This Item

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.

Hi Fatima! This instrument comes with a custom NS Design case. A bow is not included and would need to be purchased separately. Thanks for your question!
