NS Design NXT44-String Electric Violin opens up a new horizon for the serious musician seeking to play a world-class electric violin on a limited budget. NXT Violins, crafted in the Czech Republic by the makers of NS Design's renowned CR series, exemplify flawless workmanship. These beautiful violins bring world-class design and craftsmanship to a surprisingly affordable price range. With a visual appearance as striking as its sound, the roadworthy NXT is an exciting and reliable partner for the most demanding performance career. Critical performance factors for any electric violin is weight and balance, and the NXT Series tops the charts as one of the lightest electric violins on the market.
Weighing in at 585 grams, the NXT pioneers special carving techniques to reduce the weight of the maple body, while preserving extraordinary rigidity and striking good looks. Ultralight tail-mounted tuners allow precise adjustment, easy string changes, and keep the balance point of the instrument close to the shoulder for maximum comfort. Additional weight is saved by advanced piezo technology that eliminates the need for heavy on-board batteries and circuitry. The self-powered Polar electromechanical transducer, technically referred to as a passive pickup, is anything but passive, with higher output than most active systems. The result is unsurpassed dynamic range, clarity, and sheer power. The dual mode Polar pickup responds to both lateral string vibration for bowing, and vertical vibration for pizzicato playing. (A body-mounted two-way switch lets the player change modes easily.) The resulting sound retains the essential timbres of a fine acoustic violin, but is easily modifiedÛvia on-board controls or post-processingÛto suit almost any sonic palette.
The NXT adjusts easily to any violinist's style. It comes equipped with the Custom Shoulder Rest which can be formed by the player to fit the body perfectly. Using set screws, the rock-maple bridge can be readily adjusted to the desired action heightÛhigh and powerful, low and fast, or anywhere in between. NS Electric StringsÛand all other traditional violin strings fit NS violinsÛallowing the player to select from many different string options, each with a unique sound and feel.
The Polar directional piezo pickup system responds selectively to either lateral string vibration or vertical string vibration. a switch allows the player to choose the desired response. passive circuit with high impedance output, no batteries required and has volume and tone control. The chin & shoulder rests are ergonomically designed to support the instrument securely without the left hand. The padded shoulder rest is fully adjustable for height and angle.

The NXT is the first NS violin to incorporate NS Design's innovative JackPot potentiometer in its volume and tone controls. Conventional passive volume and tone controls work by siphoning a portion of the output signal to ground, and continue to hold back a portion of the pickup's signal even when turned up all the way. The JackPot incorporates a rotary switch that disengages the ground when turned fully clockwise, sending 100% of the signal to the amplifier. The result is a fuller, richer tone.
