The NS Design CR4 violin looks wildly different from any acoustic violin you've ever held, yet retains a good acoustic's familiar feel and tone. In fact, feeling and sounding like a good acoustic violin is just the beginning of what the NS Design CR4 violin can do! The instrument features a powerful preamp that can cut or boost both bass and treble separately. There is also a volume control and a three-position toggle switch that tailors the frequency response of NS Design's proprietary Polar Pickup system to an acoustic tone, an electric tone, or optimizes the signal for sustained, guitar-like pizzicato. If that level of control weren't enough, designer and ergonomic genius Ned Steinberger has included a removable upper bout position indicator as well as the most comfortable and adjustable contoured shoulder rest you'll probably ever play. The shoulder rest system allows you to adjust the height of the violin, the playing position from open to closed, and instrument tilt for more vertical or horizontal bowing angle.
Made in the Czech Republic of well-aged hard rock maple with a gorgeously flamed maple top, the NS Design CR4 violin operates on an included 9 volt battery. The price includes the full Electric Violin Shop setup and a custom NS Design case.
All NS Design instruments come with a 5-year limited warranty from the date of purchase.
