NS Design Warranty (266.77 KB)
NS Design's CR-4 viola is one of the best-sounding and most comfortable electric violas on the market. This instrument combines Ned Steinberger's genius for ergonomics with his many years of experience with the electronics of musical instruments, producing a beautiful, functional instrument with excellent amplified tone.

The adjustable shoulder pad and chinrest make this wild looking viola extremely comfortable to play. The upper bout can be removed to ease shifting to the high positions, and is much wider than the rod most other makers use. Made in the Czech Republic, the quality is identical to the earlier, more expensive US model.

The tone is very acoustic sounding, and can be modified over a large range with very effective treble and bass controls. In addition, a three position switch lets you choose a strong pizzicato sound, a warm bowed sound, or a combination of both. Includes headphone jack.

All NS Design instruments come with a 5-year limited warranty from the date of purchase. To read or print out a copy of the warranty, click on the thumbnail below to open an Adobe .pdf file of the full text of the warranty.

  1. A Great Viola... Better than the WAVs Review by Leo Volont

    I had had a NS Design WAV violin, which was okay for the money. The sound from it could be made livable with the right equalization and effects.

    But when I decided to go to Viola, I decided to spend a good deal more for the CR4. The other Premium Violins on the Market cost even more.

    But I couldn't be happier. The Active Electronics in the CR4 are very friendly in mellowing out all of the typical electric harshness inherent in single pickup passive Chinese Built electric violins... my Fender FV3 was also prey to the same harshness.

    Anyway, I've been playing my CR4 for more than a month and love love love it. Also, it doesn't seem to be very hard on its battery... I haven't had to change it out yet. (Posted on 1/9/11)
