NS Design CR4 4-String Electric Violin Amber
Please contact us for availability before placing your order.
NS Design CR44-String Electric Violin, designed by Ned Steinberger, has a remarkable tonal range with its innovative Polar pickup system, which can selectively capture the string vibration favored for both bow and pizzicato technique with stunning brilliance and sensitivity. The violinist who prefers the elegant tone of a fine acoustic will not be disappointed, and for those who wish to explore new sonic territory, the sky is the limit.
The solid-body CR4 Violin incorporates the familiar performance features of an acoustic instrument, including a removable body segment to provide the left-hand reference position of a traditional instrument. Traditional string spacing and scale length facilitate the transition from the acoustic instrument to the world of electronic music. Direct amplification and recording capabilities allow the violinist to experience something totally new, yet savor something very special the timeless magic of the violin. The NS Violin is crafted of solid maple, with an elegant flame maple face. This lightweight solid-body design transfers the full spectrum of sound to the pickup without feedback, and is very stable even with changes in temperature and humidity. The ergonomic shoulder and chin rest provide comfortable, stable support, and a removable treble side bout is included for left hand position reference. The solid ebony fingerboard is hand graduated for consistent string articulation. This awesome violin comes complete with a well-made fabric covered hard foam core case made specifically to fit the CR4. The padded, form fitting interior cradles and protects the violin. It holds 2 bows, shoulder rest, output cable, and extra gear, with lock and key.
The NS Design CR4 Electric Violin With Amber Finish features the Polar bridge-mounted piezo pickup system. The Polar pickups can sense either vertical or lateral string vibration. Set in the vertical mode, plucked notes are remarkably even and sustained. In the lateral mode, the pickup has unparalleled sensitivity in the direction of the bow, with more attack when plucked. Attack and decay can be effectively controlled with the Polar pickup system.
Remarkably precise and stable tuning is accomplished entirely behind the bridge, in the manner similar to the fine tuners of an acoustic instrument. Standard violin strings are clamped securely as the string is tuned. No headstock scroll or tuners are required, so the balance point of the instrument is back toward the shoulder for optimum playing comfort.

The dual mode preamp allows the player to choose between two very distinct tone qualities. The first mode delivers the full frequency response of low impedance electronics, for a rich, full-blown "electric" sound. The second is balanced to produce the frequency response of the traditional violin, for a more "acoustic" sound. A 3-way toggle switch allows the player to select the desired pickup and electronics options. Additional controls include volume and individual bass EQ & treble EQ controls.
