NS Design CR4 Electric Violin
Ned Steinberger has become the most well-renowned maker of electric violins on the market today. These instruments are the go-to choice of many professional violinists. The CR Series is his top of the line offering, and the NXT Series and WAV Series instruments also provide excellent value at lower price points.
Many people feel that NS Design violins have the best tone of any fully-electric violins. They have an excellent range of expression as well, capturing clear bright notes, pizzicato, and deep resonant sounds equally well. Dual pickups with a toggle switch, separate tone knobs let you dial in the amount of brightness you want, and the fine tuners are easy to use.
The violins are available in four or five string models and can be made with frets or with a traditional smooth fingerboard. The included shoulder rest is easy to attach, and the instrument comes with a removable body reference bout, which provides a spatial reference where the end of the body would be on a traditional violin.
