NS Design WAV5 5-string electric cello, Transparent Red
The NS Design WAV cello is the first ever performance quality solid-body electric cello under $1,000. Sleek, portable, playable design and reliably strong, balanced cello tone make this the best value on the electric cello market. The WAV5 cello comes with a low F string (F-C-G-D-A) but can be strung with a high E instead (C-G-D-A-E). If adding a high E, we recommend the Thomastik-Infeld Spriocore E string for a more pleasing tone. Select your string configuration or contact us for help choosing a string option.
Features the NS Coform™ Fingerboard, which employs the engineered pairing of maple and acrylic to exceed traditional performance standards while eliminating the use of increasinly endangered hardwoods like ebony or rosewood.
- Design: The WAV cello has the same shape and exceptional ergonomic feel as the higher-end NS Design cellos made in the Czech Republic.
