NS Design NXT5VN ViolinWith a sleek visual appearance as balanced and extraordinary as its sound, the NXT Violin embodies world-class performance, features, design and craftsmanship. Versatile and roadworthy, this exciting instrument is made expressly for the burgeoning plugged-in world, with new ways to connect with your music, other musicians, and new audiences.
Performance and VersatilityAt the heart of the NXT Violin, the NS Polar Pickup System captures the full spectrum of frequencies, harmonics, warmth and nuance, capable of exceptional acoustic performance when that's your intent. But in fact, because the signal coming from the Polar pickup is so rich, everything is available for pedals, mixers and other electronics to modify, so you can take your sound down any path you choose. On stage, since the NXT is purely electric, you can move anywhere, and play at any volume with any EQ, completely free of feedback.
Exceptional Comfort and FreedomLight weight and perfect balance are critical performance factors for any electric violin, and the NXT Series tops the charts as one of the lightest electric violins on the market. The familiar dimensions and landmarks on the NXT make for an easy transition from an acoustic. The feel of the strings, neck and fingerboard give an immediate sense of ease. The patented NS Tuning System, which is integrated into the body, makes tuning fast, effortless, and incredibly stable. Its location keeps the balance point of the instrument close to the shoulder for maximum comfort. The Custom Shoulder Rest has a unique malleable base which can be adjusted to fit the shoulder and chest comfortably.
