NS Design NXT 5 String Electric Violin Satin Black Finish & Case
Crafted to exacting standards in the Czech Republic, the NXT series 4- and 5-string violin, 4- and 5-string fretted violin, and 4-string viola, embody elegance, advanced ergonomics, and full-spectrum tone, fused into an instrument for the musician who needs an instrument capable of versatile performance in any stage or studio setting. At the heart of the NXT are the Polarâ„¢ Pickup System and JackPotâ„¢ circuitry, electronics which deliver a beautifully balanced, rich signal, providing the widest range of expressive opportunities to the player. At the same time, the NXT was designed for exceptional comfort, light weight, and ease of use.
Polarâ„¢ Pickup This system employs piezo components so that string vibration is converted directly to electrical signal. Vibration from bowing is different from vibration from pizzicato, and the beauty of the Polar Pickup is its ability to respond optimally to both. A toggle switch allows the player to select between bowing or pizzicato mode for desired dynamic range, sustain and clarity. The Polar Pickupis also self-powered, which eliminates the weight and bulk of batteries and power circuitry. JackPotâ„¢ Circuitry Conventional passive volume and tone controls inevitably siphon off a portion of the output signal, even at the maximum setting. The JackPot circuitry includes a special rotary switch which, when turned fully clockwise, sends 100% of the instrumentâ€™s signal to the amplifier. The result is a fuller, richer tone, with more power, detail, and overall intensity. Custom Shoulder Rest This instrument is one of the lightest performance electrics on the market, and comes equipped with the NS Custom Shoulder Rest whose malleable padded aluminum base can actually be formed by the player to fit the body perfectly. Patented Tuning System US Pat. # 6,528,710 This remarkable system provides exceptionally easy, precise and stable tuning. Mounted entirely behind the bridge, its location shifts the balance point of the instrument closer in to the playerâ€™s body, for an even lighter feel and enhanced comfort. Adjustable Bridge The adjustable bridge can be readily raised or lowered with convenient set screws: high and powerful, low and fast, or string height anywhere between.
Controls Self-powered piezo circuit with high impedance output, no batteries required. Volume control and Tone control (treble roll off). Incorporates the JackPot, by which the Volume control disengages the ground when turned fully clockwise, sending 100% of the instrumentâ€™s signal to the amplifier. Additional Options For even greater player versatility, the optional Balanced Shoulder Rest replaces the chinrest and standard shoulder rest and â€œsuspendsâ€ the instrument in optimal playing position. NS Electric Stringsâ€”and all other traditional violin or viola stringsâ€”fit NS instruments, allowing the player to select from many different string options, each with a unique sound and feel.
